Who Wins This Match?
It helps to look at how we have got to this match. England beat Fiji 35-11 in the opening game of the tournament. They then lost by three points to Wales, to put their journey out of the pool stage in jeopardy.
Australia also beat Fiji in their first match, albeit by the lesser margin of 28-13. There is a case to be made that Fiji have improved with each game, as they gave England’s conqueror’s Wales a scare on Thursday. Australia’s second match was a 65-3 demolition of Uruguay.
All the major teams in this tournament look fallible and equally matched. This one is hard to call. England must win it, while Australia know defeat could mean their exit from the tournament too. After all, Wales are in this group and only two go through.
England are marginal favourites to win with the bookies, primarily due to home advantage. Our feeling is Australia may just pip them by five points. However if you take up Betfair‘s excellent enhanced odds offer above, then even if you back a loser you’ll end up a winner – with some free bets at the very least.
