England form and team news
England enters the World Cup as one of the favorites to claim the William Webb Ellis trophy and its recent form supports it. You can see how far they will go in the tournament in my overview of Name the Finalists.
His last match was a comfortable 37-0 win over Italy in a preseason game. Before that, they beat Ireland 57-15 at Twickenham in an excellent performance. In total, they won four and drew in their last six games.
England is a favorite to lead Group C with France, Argentina, the United States, and Tonga. Eddie Jones will likely approach Tonga before resting a lot of players against the United States on Thursday.
Whatever the national team, I think England will too strong for Tonga. These early matches should indicate how Jones chose to use Owen Farrell, as he recently traded between half of the fly and downtown.
The win for England no value in 1.002, but it can offset the disadvantage of -41 in 1.90 against a Tonga team much lower than the previous World Cup.
Tonga Form & Team News
Tonga will physically and sometimes even bruised, while they also have well broken-field runners. But against a team of England made up of world-class individuals, I think they will fight to get closer.
Tonga won just one of five games this year, a 33-23 victory over Canada’s second-tier. His last game was a humiliation in Hamilton when the All Blacks mutinied and won 92-7.
Serious improvements will made if Tonga wants to avoid a similar defeat. Tongans do not play much rugby together, which complicates matters further with the impossibility of establishing good attack and defense structures.
Tonga head coach Kristian Woolf made a defensive exercise in the past two weeks. It remains to be seen if this works, but whatever system is used, it will difficult to compete with the English strikers.
Tonga is massively disadvantaged at $ 34.00 while a raffle will pay $ 67.00. A brave man will needed to support one of these results.
England vs Tonga clashes and Match Up
H2h: England beat Tonga in their two previous meetings. In 1999, at the Rugby World Cup, England beat 101-10 Tongans. In 2007, England felt comfortable with a 36-20 win at Parc des Princes.
Match Up: England’s dominance slowly begun to return and Eddie Jones will likely pick a full-fledged team. Tonga will line them up in the scrum and the scrum, but I do not see that happening with Tonga weak in these departments.
