How to watch Rugby World Cup 2023 matches live for free?
M6 will broadcast, for the first time in its history, the Rugby World Cup, which will be held in France from September 8 to October 28, 2023. No less than 18 live and exclusive matches, a quarter of which will be shown on the channel. As part of this international event, M6 will publish exceptional coverage, led by a panel of experts, including the first commentator in the history of the Rugby World Cup.
The dedicated program “100% Rugby”, presented by Clémentine Sarlat, will highlight 5 key days of the tournament and revisit the highlights. In addition, the M6 newsletter, as well as the RTL and RTL.fr platforms, will pay special attention to the tournament with reports, records and exclusive audio content. The host will be accompanied by two former French rugby glories: Folgens Ouedraogo and Lineage-Coursonne.
Who are the commentators on M6’s Rugby World Cup broadcast?
3 pairs of specialists will lead comments on these meetings. After the tapes were hung, former France international Olivier Magne turned to a coaching career. His experience led him to take charge of the France U-20 forwards between 2014 and 2016. Next to him is Nicolas Delage, a familiar face in the world of sports journalism. In fact, he heads the ranks of the rugby media, passionately covering the world of oval football.
Marie Semperi is an iconic figure for women’s rugby in France. Having proudly worn the jersey of the French teams in the fifteenth and seventh, she was crowned French champion four times. While her talent on the pitch is undeniable, she has also distinguished herself as a consultant to various media outlets. On the M6, she will make history when she became the first woman to commentate on the Men’s Rugby World Cup on French soil. Laurent Despres, for his part, is a well-known face in the world of sports journalism. He started his career at Radio Sud for seven years, then joined RMC Sport where he spent nearly 14 years as a dedicated reporter. His experience and passion for sports have made him a respected voice in the community.
Jan Delegge has distinguished himself as an outstanding rugby union player, making no fewer than 20 selections for the French squad. Now he is pursuing his passion as a consultant. This hyperactivity recently took a new step by taking on the Eden Park WaterRugby direction at the Sport Event. Finally, Xavier Domergue is a well-known voice on the sports media scene. Since joining Groupe M6 in July 2020, he has commented with passion and experience on a range of major sporting events. His professionalism and energy make him among the most respected sports presenters.
