After a bruising clash with South Africa A on Wednesday, the Lions will be looking to get back to winning ways, in this, their last warm-up match of the tour before taking on the Springboks.
Read on as our guide explains how to watch a British Lions vs DHL Stormers live stream from anywhere in the world.
The Lions suffered their first defeat of the 2021 tour on Wednesday, as they went down 17-13 to an international-strength South Africa A team – and after a series of relatively easy thrashings, this tightly fought loss will serve well to bring the team back to earth.
The hosts took a 14-point lead after a powerful first-half display, with tries from Sbu Nkosi and Lukhanyo Am. A Lions fight-back followed Wyn Jones scoring, only for the hosts to successfully run down the clock and see out the win.
Robbie Henshaw is set to make his first start since the warm-up clash with Japan last month, while Stuart Hogg is back to lead the team. Marcus Smith is poised to make his British and Irish Lions bow.
The big talking point in terms of team news is the shock return of Tour skipper Alun Wyn Jones, who is included on the bench following a miraculous recovery from a dislocated shoulder. Only time will tell if he’ll see action, but it’s good to see him fit and well again.
All you need to do follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get a British Lions live stream wherever you are right now.

How to live stream British Lions when you’re not in your country
If you’re outside your country of residence – whether that be the UK or anywhere else – and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you’ll soon discover that you can’t, as it’s location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.
By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream – assuming you comply with the broadcaster’s fine print, of course – specifically its terms and conditions.

How to watch the British Lions vs DHL Stormers free online and live stream rugby in the US
NBC Sports has the rights to show British & Irish Lions Tour Matches. This match kicks off in the States at 12pm ET / 9am PT on Saturday.
Watching rugby on NBC used to mean coughing up the best part of $80 for an NBC Sports Gold Rugby Pass, but not anymore. NBC’s Rugby Pass has been absorbed into its excellent new streaming platform, Peacock TV, which makes rugby more accessible to US fans of the sport and ex-pats living in the States than ever before.
For starters, Peacock costs just $4.99 a month for an ad-supported service that gets rugby fans not only the Lions Tour 2021 but also features Premiership Rugby and Heineken Champions Cup coverage as well (plus loads more premium sports coverage, TV shows, and movies). Alternatively, you can pay a $10 a month for commercial-free coverage.
And best of all, Peacock even offers a FREE 7-day trial you can take advantage of.
If you’ve already hopped on the Peacock bandwagon but are abroad during the 2021 Lions Tour, don’t forget that you can still tune in like you at home with the help of a good VPN.
