You can watch the rugby on two different screens and there are two electronic dart boards, as well as one traditional dart board available for relaxation in between rugby matches.

The Wolfhound has been a favorite watering hole for travelers and locals alike – going all the way back to 2010.

They have a mouth-watering food menu as well as an extensive drinks menu available from 5pm week days and 11am on weekends. The drinks menu also include a number of local and foreign beers on tap.

If you are looking to watch the rugby, or just looking for a fun night out in Busan near Haeundae Beach, the Wolfhound is definitely the place to go. There is always a crowd of locals and travelers, good music to dance and listen to, and just has an all round great vibe.

The Korean Expatriate Rugby Association League visited Pyeongtaek, Gyeongi Province, for the second time in 2019. This time the event, KERA 19-5, took place at the Osan Middle High School on the Osan Air Base.

KERA 19 – 5: Stars & Stripes Military Rugby Korea

The Stars & Stripes team used their home ground advantage to great effect by claiming wins against both Ulsan Goblins and Seoul Survivors. It is the second time this year that the up-and-coming military team has claimed a Survivor scalp. They made it 2 wins from 2 matches played.

KERA 19 – 5: Seoul Survivors

The Seoul Survivors registered a win against the Ulsan Goblins and yet another loss to the athletic Stars & Stripes team. Although comfortably leading the KERA Log, they seem to have found a new nemesis.

KERA 19-5: Ulsan Goblins

The Ulsan lads once again put in some spirited performances with new players added to their ranks. They welcomed Spencer Ferguson who played his first KERA tournament in Ulsan colours. Unfortunately they could not manage to register a win on the day.

KERA 19-5: Busan Bandits

The Busan Bandits rugby team was an unfortunate late withdrawel from the KERA 19 – 5 tournament. This was due to a spate of injuries and pre-arranged Rugby World Cup 2019 travel plans.

KERA 19-5 After Party

After all the matches were concluded, the teams moved on to the Tailgate Tavern for the prize-giving ceremony, Rugby World Cup 2019 matches and usual social shenanigans.

A big “thank you” to the Stars & Stripes team for hosting a successful KERA 19-5 tournament and congratulations on the two good wins.

It’s Rugby World Cup time and the air is buzzing with excitement … literally, as you just have to access Facebook to get what we mean. But, the pressing matter at hand is … how to watch the rugby world cup online here in Korea, or the rest of Asia for that matter.

Here

There is a long list of official broadcasters available, but it is of no help to us here in Korea. Many of us subscribe to RugbyPass, but unfortunately they don’t have broadcasting rights.

Then, of course, there are a fair number of watering holes across Korea who’ll be screening most, if not all, of the games. If pubs and bars are not your thing, or you’d just like to chill at home and watch online, then we have two solutions for you. 

  • Official Rugby World Cup 2019 website
  • ITV website

It seems that rugbyworldcup.com are streaming the matches live (or possibly delayed), and it is a win-win situation for all rugby fans worldwide.

If you experience any problems with rugbyworldcup.com streams, then your next option is itv.com.

What Is ITV

Let us explain …

ITV is a UK based online video on demand service accessible through the main ITV website, itv.com. The service offers a variety of programs across ITV, ITV2, ITVBe, ITV3, ITV4 and CITV. Most important of all is that all 48 Rugby World Cup matches will be available on ITV for free (ITV 4 and ITV Hub).

Watch the Rugby World Cup 2019 Japan on ITV Hub

As long as you are in the UK, you can stream all the matches online for free. Okay, so we are not in the UK! How are we going to do this?

Easy … we are going to use a VPN (virtual private network).

What VPN To Use

For the sake of simplicity we recommend you use ExpressVPN. Here’s why …

ExpressVPN is really easy to use, is incredibly fast and works everywhere (incuding China). Also, signing up for ExpressVPN only takes a few minutes. All you have to do is select their pricing plan, enter in your e-mail, and put in your purchase information. There aren’t any long-winded questionnaires involved. Just a quick 1,2,3 and you’re done.

The Busan Bandits recommend ExpressVPN to keep you safe from prowling eyes

You can use ExpressVPN on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. You’re allowed up to three connections per subscription. So if you’re person with multiple devices you won’t get left out in the cold.

Unlike other VPNs that require you to enter your login information every time you use their software, you only have to enter an activation code (which is given to you when you sign-up and download ExpressVPN) once and you’re ready to watch World Cup Rugby 2019 online. They have a monthly subscription available if you are not interested in subscribing to a VPN service for the long haul.

After you have subscribed to, and downloaded ExpressVPN, you then access ITV.

Remember to have your VPN activated with your location set to UK, London, before you click through to ITV. Then all you need to do is sign up for a free ITV account, confirm your e-mail address, and you’re good to go. Just note that you’ll be asked to enter a (UK) post code. You can find a way around that here.

We hope this information helped you to watch the Rugby World Cup 2019 online in Korea and that your team exceeds your expectations.
