All Blacks to show England the benchmark


It has been a long time coming but New Zealand and England will finally do battle at Twickenham, as the Red Rose prepare to see how they fair against the world champions.

England +13.5 handicap FT @ 25/26

After a 2018 Six Nations to forget, England showed they can grind out a result last weekend, as they managed to secure a 12-11 victory over South Africa.

With a host of European-based players missing for the Springboks, due to the game being outside of the international window, South Africa will have been pleased with how close they came to victory at Twickenham.

New Zealand will pose a different challenge completely and, with less than a year to go until the World Cup in Japan, this represents a great opportunity for England to see how they measure up.

The All Blacks showed have too much quality for Eddie Jones’ side but England are rarely well-beaten at home and they should fall on the right side of the handicap.

Wales to win @ 4/5

It has been 10 years since Wales’ last victory against Australia and the men in red might be able to end their hoodoo against the Wallabies this weekend in Cardiff.

The Welsh have suffered plenty of heartbreak against the Aussies in that time but the two teams look to be in very different places as the World Cup draws closer.

This encounter is bound to have plenty of thrills and spills but after a dogged win over Scotland last time out, Wales should make it two wins from two this autumn.
