Rugby World Cup 2019 - England V Australia 19.10.2019

Old rivals Australia and England will clash in the first quarter final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup at the Oita Stadium on Saturday afternoon (local time).

Australia won three of their four Pool D group games but lost out 29-25 to Wales in their final match which ultimately determined the winner of the group. The Aussies are not quite the force of old but we can expect them to raise their game here against fierce rivals England.

The English come into this game in good form holding a 100% win record in the group stage although their last game against France was cancelled due to Typhoon Hagibis.

England V Australia Prediction

This is a tough game to call when looking to make an England V Australia prediction. England are hot favourites to win with the bookies at odds of 4/11 (1.36) being the best available. Australia may be underdogs at 11/4 (3.75) but can never be discounted and could be worth a small wager especially if you hold any England V Australia free bets / tokens. The draw is 29.0.

The Wallabies haven’t been impressive so far but they reached the final four years ago and it may pay to back them on the Handicap betting market with +8 start at 10/11 (1.91).
