International Rugby League Betting Tips & Predictions
France v England Betting Tips & Predictions (Saturday 14:30 BST)
With the Rugby League World Cup postponed for another year, Shaun Wane will take his side to the South of France in an attempt to keep his side fresh and cast his eye over his World Cup hopefuls. England coach Wane has named a side that will feature eight uncapped players. This will give them a chance to show what they can do ahead of the tournament at the end of next season. England will be without the likes of Sam Tomkins, George Williams, Daryl Clark and Jermaine McGillvary through injury. John Bateman has been named as captain and is the most capped player in the team with 16. The eight players making their international debut are Jordan Abdull, Tom Davies, Niall Evalds, Morgan Knowles, Kruise Leeming, Paul McShane, Mikolaj Oledski and Joe Philbin. Davies, Knowles, McShane, Oledski and Philbin all featured for England in their defeat against a Combined Nations All Stars, but it doesn’t count as an official international. Leeming also played in that game, but he was on the All Stars – proving that Wane will not rule anyone out. If you are playing well enough, he will give players their chance. France coach Laurent Frayssinous has named a strong squad to take on England. From his 20-man squad, 19 of his players come from Catalans Dragons and Toulouse. The only player not to be playing club rugby for a French side is Salford Red Devils’ Morgan Escare. England might be understrengthed in terms of experience, but they have plenty of talent to be too strong for the French. I am backing the likes of Bateman, Liam Farrell, Zak Hardaker, Tommy Makinson, Abdull, Jonny Lomax and Alex Walmsley to all to perform well and guide England to a comfortable victory.
