England are scheduled to face France on Saturday morning (9:15AM UK time) in the final game of Pool C. Both nations have already secured their place in the quarter-finals with wins over Argentina and all that’s left to play for is top seeding.
On current form it looks as if England will play Australia and France will play Wales in the knockout phases but that could change depending on Saturday’s results.
Our partners Genting Bet have previewed the game with Pete Colley joined by Andy Goode and Jim Hamilton in studio to discuss the Pool C encounter.
Andy Goode is predicting an 18 point victory for England and you can back England -14.5 at 11/10 with Genting Bet.
The much talked about Super Typhoon Hagibis could yet have an impact on this game but initial reports indicate that the fixture will go ahead. The weather will play its part though and this game could be much tighter than expected. France (+8.5) looks like a decent bet at 6/4.
