England To Edge An Epic Six Nations Clash With Wales In Cardiff

It promises to be a tremendous occasion in Cardiff on Saturday evening as Wales take on their old rivals England in the Six Nations and we fancy it is the visiting Englishmen who can secure a valuable victory in the Welsh capital...

  • The Welsh have lost four of the last five Wales v England matches
  • George North has scored a try in each of his past five appearances in the Six Nations

The Story So Far

Both teams made winning starts to the tournament last weekend as Wales recovered from a woeful first half to defeat Italy 33-7 in Rome and England found a way to win a sixteenth Test in a row courtesy of their 19-16 victory against France.

England were never convincing against the French but they found a way to win and their Head Coach, Eddie Jones, has been using the old reverse psychology to ward away complacency by suggesting that his players have a "horrendous" record in Wales.

The reality is very different as England have actually won five and lost five of their past ten matches at the Principality Stadium and they are worthy 8/13 favourites for Saturday (Betway).
Match Odds:

Head-To-Head

Since Wales stunned England 30-3 to nick the Six Nations crown and deny England the Grand Slam in 2013, the Red Rose have won four of their five meetings against the Welsh, who are yet to convince under interim Head Coach Rob Howley.

Howley is likely to risk the fitness of George North and Dan Biggar this weekend, while Rob Evans and Thomas Francis come into the starting XV, but his charges may have been rattled by Eddie Jones taking so long to decide that he would prefer the roof to be open in Cardiff (both teams have to agree for it to be closed).

The roof being closed has often been an advantage for the home team and it is telling that England have won four of the five matches against Wales when the roof has been open, hence why we are backing the visitors to secure a narrow win.

Much has been made of the decision to hand Jack Clifford a first Six Nations start in a youthful back row that has made just four Test appearances in those positions but the reality is that nine of their 23-man squad for Saturday were part of the side that beat Wales on home soil in 2015 and they can repeat the feat.

England are 21/10 to win by 1-10 points and that is a stand-out punt with Betfair.
