It’s the worst case scenario for the Wallabies here after finishing Second in Pool D. England is up first in the quarters and a more probable than not semi-final with the All Blacks for the winner of this. We take a look at Saturday nights (19/10/2019) Rugby World Cup Finals 2019 match which is between the England and Australia.
When: Saturday 19th October, 6:15PM AEDT
Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
First things first they need to get through an English side they have really struggled with since eliminating them from their home World Cup in 2015.
Since that night in London, the English have won all six test matches between the two sides by an average of 15 points.
At the World Cup though, these matches have been much closer with the 20 point win for Australia four years ago the anomaly rather than the norm.
In fact, England’s three wins over Australia have been by a combined total of eight points.
What does tip the scales in favour of the English here though, is the performance of the two backlines.
Australia has really struggled to find a coherent backline combination to test their opponents and the English have been really efficient defensively, giving up 20 points in their three pool matches.
England should be able to keep the Wallabies under 20 points, the question is what Australia is able to do to keep the English under that number as well.
Both sides will be up for this match but the edge has to go to England, although it probably won’t be the massive blowout some are forecasting.
For a bit of insurance though, back the unders because if Australia do win, it will be by a very low scoring contest.
Tip: England at $1.32
