It’s England v France rugby betting time on Saturday, as the preparations for the 2015 Rugby World Cup start to kick into gear.
Tournament host nation England will be keen to carry forth the adventure and enterprise from their Six Nations campaign earlier in the year as coach Stuart Lancaster gets a look at his squad. England beat France 55-35 in a thrilling Six Nations encounter at Twickenham back in March.
Lancaster will have to whittle his squad down to his official 31 man World Cup squad, so this could be the last chance for a lot of players to impress.
The much hyped Sam Burgess experiment at centre will come under scrutiny at Twickenham on Saturday as they host France. This is all just experimentation at the moment before England start their Pool A campaign on September 18th against Fiji.
England are 9/2 second favourites behind New Zealand to win the World Cup, but they have to come through a tough group which also houses Australian and Wales.
England are 5/2 to win Pool A at the Rugby World Cup 2015, with Australia, who just beat New Zealand in the Rugby Championship at 2/1 and Wales at 4/1 for pool success. Winning the group will mean avoiding South Africa (most likely) in the quarter finals.
