Ireland is coming into the 2019 Rugby World Cup looking to live up their billing as the best ranked team in the world. The Irish have never made it past the quarter-final phase, and will be looking to address that anomaly by making a good start against a familiar foe in fellow Six Nations side Scotland.
Scotland have gone one better than Ireland, having made the semi-final back in 1991, and recent form suggests they'll likely have a decent run in Japan (although probably not to the last four).
We'll give you the low down on how to get an Ireland vs Scotland live stream below, no matter where you happen to be in the world.
The big talking point ahead of today's match is whether the game will actually go ahead. Torential downpours are forecast for Yokohama on Sunday with an inch of rain expected before kick-off. Should the game be called off, it won't be re-scheduled, with both teams given a point for a draw instead.
Irish hopes will be resting heavily on the shoulders of the half-back pairing of Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton, while scrum-half Greg Laidlaw and full-back Stuart Hogg look to be the key men for Scotland.
