England vs Argentina match predictions
England to win with a -8.0 point handicap @ 1/1 (2.00)So let’s go through the evidence from the opening fixture in Pool D when Argentina were the in-form side and England were at the back end of an awful run of results and were in the midst of their obsession with red cards! With that background, it was no surprise to see England go down to 14 men after only three minutes of the game, but what was a surprise was how England went on to control the match and win comfortably 27-10 with Los Pumas strangely subdued. Fast forward fifty days and England were the last team to lose a game in the 2023 Rugby World Cup and were only one point and three minutes away from reaching the final last weekend. We are backing England to comfortably win with an 8 point handicap.
Owen Farrell Over 15.5 Total Points @ 9/4 ( 3.25)All of England’s points against Argentina in Marseilles came from the boot of George Ford but he will be on the bench in this game with the kicking of Owen Farrell likely to be England’s main source of points this time. Say what you like about England’s over-reliance on kicking and lack of tries but it nearly took them to the final of the tournament! Since returning from suspension, England skipper Farrell has contributed 59 points from four matches so over 15.5 could be tight but in a more open Bronze Final, we expect him to deliver.
England vs Argentina match previewWill England’s ‘so close but yet so far’ semi-final sob-story mean they are still grieving come Friday evening or will Argentina be so battered and bruised from their thrashing by New Zealand that they are unable to go again in the Bronze Final?
EnglandBack to back Rugby World Cup finals it is not for England but they have proved many doubters wrong during this tournament in France. Coming into the competition with most pundits expecting them to be dumped out at the group stage, Steve Borthwick’s men won six in a row! Borthwick has selected a strong side for the Bronze Final but has made eight changes to the team who were defeated in the semi-final.
ArgentinaThe pride of South America took a surprise early lead against the All Blacks last weekend but probably wished they hadn’t now as they were thrashed 44-6. This will be coach Michael Cheika’s final game in charge and he has made only three changes which shows how much he wants to sign off with some bronze around his neck.
