25-02-2023 Daily Predictions Six Nations Championship Wales vs England

Wales vs England

Welsh rugby have come through the most testing period in their history with players threatening to strike but the disaster was averted on the 11th hour. It remains to be seen if this will galvanize the team or have an adverse effect. Coach Warren Gatland has made sweeping changes to the team and also hands a debut to young Max Grady in the 13 shirt. Wales midfield duo have a combined three caps between them and no doubt England will be targeting this area. England have made just one change from their win over Italy, bring in winger Anthony Watson.  

TIP: Wales have been outplayed in their opening two matches while England will be playing their first away match of the competition. The home team have selected a very pacy backline which will run at the English defence all match long. The visitors will not only need to be weary of the Welsh attack but also a partisan home crowd of over 80 000 to contend with. Wales have recalled senior players like Alun Wyn Jones, Taulupe Faletau and Justin Tipuric and will need a big game from them if they are to pick up their first win. The bookies have England as favourites but I’m tipping Wales for the upset win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 3.20, Gbets 3.25 and Hollywoodbets 3.25

Latest results for both teams

Wales lost 35-7 to Scotland in their last match while England beat Italy 31-14 in their last match.

PREDICTION

The Welsh team will be desperate not to lose their opening three matches for the first time under Gatland and he has reacted in positive team selections. England have struggled when the opposition attacks run at them and Wales have plenty of attacking threats all around the park. The home team have world class wingers in Josh Adams and Louis Rees-Zammit who are among the fastest players in world rugby. The England pack will be under scrutiny once again as they have looked poor in their opening two matches. If Wales can get an advantage in the forwards, then they will win this match by 6 points.
