Latest results for both teams
England lost 36-12 to Ireland in their last match while Samoa lost 31-26 to Fiji in their last match.
Since Samoa have rejoined the Sevens circuit after the Covid 19 pandemic they have been in sparkling form. In the five tournaments that they participated in they have climbed up the table to tenth spot with 58 points. They are just 12 points behind England who have played four more tournaments than them. I am backing England to win this match by 5 points.

Sports crazy fan that follows all major sport but the game with the oval ball is my real passion. Was an age level rugby coach and a huge supporter of the Springboks and diehard Liverpool man. I’m an experienced punter and sports writer whose predictions/tips are sure to stir up the emotions. I love the occasional wager on the underdog.
