England vs Wales   

England welcomes Wales to Twickenham for this World Cup warm up game. The hosts will have revenge on their mind after they were beaten 20-9 by this opponent last week. It should be a much changed team from last week as it was arguably the worst English performance in many years. Coach Steve Borthwick would have been left fuming with the 17 handling errors by his team, with the conditions not to blame.

Wales have shown a marked improvement since Warren Gatland has been recalled with players showing the fighting spirit and passion that was missing in the last few seasons.

TIP: England are set to make multiple changes with Captain Owen Farrell returning in the number 10 jersey in place of Marcus Smith. The youngster looked flustered in the last match and it is hoped the experienced Farrell will bring a calm head to the game. Wales have made wholesale changes to their team with the entire backline changed. The selection of Tom Rogers on the wing is the most talked about one with the winger considered lucky to be named in the team. The bookies have England as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.12, Gbets 1.14 and Hollywoodbets 1.14


England vs Wales  

  • The last four matches between the sides has seen each side claiming two wins.
  • England have won their last six home matches against Wales.

Latest results for both teams

These teams played each other a week ago with Wales winning 20-9.


England have already named their World Cup squad while Wales are yet to name theirs, so the visiting players are sure to be hungrier as they fight for their places. The home side struggled in attack in the last match as they had plenty of possession but failed to turn it into points. Wales on the other hand had little possession but showed a cutting edge to their attack with the excellent Aaron Wainwright leading the way. England will be hoping that powerhouse center Ollie Lawrence can get them over the advantage line with his carries. I am predicting an English win by 7 points
