England vs. New Zealand World Cup Preview: England face up hill challenge to beat World’s best

Published

on

New Zealand remain on course for a 4th Rugby World Cup title and their third in as many competitions. The reigning champions are yet to put a foot wrong in Japan and face England on Saturday with a place in the final up for grabs.

In typical Eddie Jones fashion the England coach has already started the mind games claiming the pressure and expectation lies with the All Blacks. And to be fair he’s not wrong. New Zealand, like they have been all tournament, are favourites to not only reach the final by beating England but lift the Web Ellis Trophy a week later. They’re not invincible, though.

If England are to reach their first World Cup final since 2003 they’ll have to be at their very best and then hope New Zealand have a rare off day. Against Australia they were outstanding from start to finish. Jonny May’s quick fire double gave England the perfect start and he’s 12/1 to score the first try on Saturday.

Eddie Jones has recalled George Ford at fly-half while captain Owen Farrell shifts to inside centre. Both will have to be on top of their game if England are to have any chance of progressing against a New Zealand side with Beauden Barrett amongst their ranks. The 28 year old put in a man of the match performance in the All Black’s 46-14 demolition job of the Irish and he’s 8/1 to be named MOTM for a second game running.

New Zealand have won the last six encounters between the two sides, but were pushed all the way at Twickenham last year. The visitors overturned a 15 point deficit to eventually win 16-15 and the All Blacks are 11/2 to win by 1-5 points.

England face an uphill task to reach the Rugby World Cup Final and that’s reflected in the odds. Eddie Jones’ side are 5/2 to win inside 80 minutes while New Zealand are as short as 2/5 to win.
