Rugby World Cup - Ireland v Japan: What time is it on and where can I watch it?

IRELAND got their 2019 World Cup campaign off to the perfect start after thumping Scotland 27-3 on Sunday in Yokohama.

Not only was it a fist-pumpingly impressive victory against a local rival, it was a resounding win over the side who arguably posed the biggest threat to Joe Schmidt's side in the group.

And not only that, they picked up a bonus point for scoring three more tries than their Scottish counterparts, as James Ryan, Rory Best, Tadhg Furlong and Andrew Conway pitched in with five-pointers.
