Rugby World Cup 2019: England v Australia Tips & Preview

England kick-off the knockout stages of the 2019 Rugby World Cup as they face old rivals Australia in the Oita Stadium on Saturday morning.
Eddie Jones sprung when naming his side on Thursday dropping in-form fly-half George Ford and going captain Owen Farrell back together with Henry Slade coming into the midfield alongside Manu Tuilagi, into the 10 jersey.
Other modifications visit Courtney Lawes coming to Mako Vunipola and the next row which makes his first start. This selection blunting that the strong ball carriers that were Australians and is based on power.
Michael Cheika has produced a few eyebrow raising collections using Jordan Petaia at centre, although Christian Lealiifano and Will Genia combine from the half-backs in their fourth different combination of this contest.
Australia have played in fits and starts during this World Cup, producing a strong second half to defeat Fiji, until their strong fightback dropped short, but they had been woeful for 40 minutes against Wales.
By comparison England come back into this game on the rear of a 14 day crack — that may be a large negative or a major positive and have been untested.
Since beating England at Twickenham in the 2015 World Cup, Australia have endured six successive defeats to Eddie Jones facet such as a 3-0 series loss in the summer of 2016. In those six encounters England possess an average winning margin of 15 points, and have scored 30 or more points in all but one of those clashes (although the Aussies have scored 30 or more precisely once).
But I really dont anticipate the guys in white since they have done in the past several decades to run away with this fixture, but I do think they will just have too much to the Wallabies. Despite the changes their negative feels more settled and theyve got more clarity in the manner in which that they want to playwith.
But we understand that with backs into the walls Michael Hooper and his side will come from breathing fire, but I believe Farrell and co. will come out on top in a tight experience — England by 1-10 points are my bet.
My choice is Elliot Daly tryscorer, the England fullback has two attempts against Australia in his career and has grown into his role in the past couple of months. He will look to combine the line and could expose the distance between the Petaia and his wingers – he is well worth chancing to receive his second try of the tournament.
