England vs Wales

What a game we have in store on Sunday as the Grand Slam champions travel to take on an England side that will still be hurting after their last encounter with Wales. The third match of the 2019 Six Nations saw Wales host England in what many billed as a championship decider, and so it proved, with Wales battling back from being 10-3 down at half-time to clinch a fantastic 21-13 win over their rivals. That victory set them up with the chance to win another Grand Slam, one they duly took as they ensured coach Warren Gatland ended his final Six Nations campaign in the perfect possible way. Now, Wales will be looking to complete a hat-trick of wins over England in 2019 by first beating them this weekend and then again next weekend. For England this is a huge chance to grab a big psychological boost over their opponents, with another loss to Wales one that will likely have major ramifications for the World Cup.


England’s last few matches have been a real mixed bag with wins coming along with exceptionally disappointing results. Victory for Eddie Jones’ young and inexperienced side over the Barbarians in a 51-43 triumph saw them return to victorious ways whilst also avenging their embarrassing 63-45 loss to the same side the year before. This came after a disappointing end to their Six Nations campaign which saw superb wins over Ireland and France get things started, but that loss to Wales hit their campaign hard. A big 57-14 win over Italy was expected, but they were then held 38-38 by Scotland at Twickenham. While the final match was a hugely entertaining one with the neutrals treated to a feast of rugby, England will know they cannot afford another capitulation like that this year, with any loss like this in a World Cup one that could be terminal. 


For Wales, this is a big chance to once again take the scalp of one of their major rivals, with their incredible 14-game winning run one that could be extended this weekend. Victories over the likes of France, South Africa, Argentina, Australia, England and Ireland shows the side have not been building a run solely playing weaker opponents, and if they are to beat England in their next two games and Ireland in the two following that then they will go to the 2019 World Cup in Japan full of confidence. Gatland’s final hurrah as the Wales coach will be at the World Cup this year and his players will be desperate to send him off with the trophy, and what would be their first ever World Cup crown. 

The Squads 

England are still sweating on the recoveries of the likes of Brad Shields, Mako Vunipola, George Kruis and Jack Nowell, with all four at different stags of rehabilitation so far. Vunipola in particular will be a worry as he has become a vital cog in the pack and, despite making promising progress, no return date has been touted following his hamstring injury. Wales meanwhile will be without influential number eight Taulupe Faletau after he broke his collar bone, dealing a hammer blow to Gatland’s squad with the forward a world class player, although the soon to be departing coach has considerable assets to call upon in the back-row with the likes of Ross Moriarty, Josh Navidi and Justin Tipuric looking particularly good of late. One man that seems destined to miss out on a chance to represent his country at the World Cup is English back Danny Cipriani, who was sent home from the team’s training camp, and this dropping seems to allude to the fact he will miss out on the chance to go to Japan with the team. 

Betting Tips 

In this one we feel that Wales are well worth a punt at 15/8 with Betfair. With an incredible run behind them coupled with their impressive victory over the outfit in Cardiff earlier this year we think they could yet shock the bookies, who have gone 4/9 on an England win, which we think is too short considering the fact the two teams are very closely matched. Of course, things do depend on whether the two managers decide to play their strongest teams or experiment, with these last cluster of games their final chances to look at players on the fringes of the team or squad. Despite this, we think that Wales do provide enough value to back them as they will have one eye on extending that winning run. 

Anytime Try Scorer 

For this one we have no shortage of choices to score first. Of course, we are unsure on who will play, but Wales and England could field the likes of Josh Adams, George North, Liam Williams, Jonny May, Henry Slade and Anthony Watson among many, many more, with this market providing no shortage of options. Our pick to score in the game comes in the form of England winger May, who is outstanding when running with the ball in hand. If May is given a chance to stretch his legs then we expect to see him flying over the line, something he did six times in the recent Six Nations.
