Wales vs England Predictions & Betting Tips – 2020 Autumn Nations Cup

The Autumn Nations Cup continues apace and matches between Wales and England are always ones to look forward to.

The game on Saturday (kick off 4pm) will be another fantastic occasion between these two sporting foes. England have been dominant in their opening two games of this newly-formed tournament.

They swept Georgia aside convincingly in their opening game, before putting Ireland to the sword which included a Jonny May wonder try.

Wales may not be the force of old but they still have the talent to produce some stellar rugby. They cruised to an 18-0 win over Georgia last week but were trounced 32-9 by Ireland the week before.

Never write off the Welsh though as this could be a real game to savour!

Wales vs England Predictions

When you think of Wales vs England, you always think of some legendary games over the years. Both nations have possessed some of the greatest rugby players of all time and some of the current guard could also enter that list.

Wales are probably going through a period of transition. The older guard are past their best and the newer players have to take their time to bed in.

England, meanwhile, are probably still smarting after their heartbreaking Rugby World Cup final defeat to South Africa having looked the best team in the competition.

They have been absolutely superb in their first two games and the likes of May, Owen Farrell, Maro Itoje and Billy Vunipola could get into any rugby side in the world.

Here at NetBet sports betting, we expect England to be dominant again against Wales and cruise to a group win, with tougher tests on the horizon.

Wales Team News

Scrum-half Lloyd Williams is likely to get his first start in four years as Wales make some changes ahead of their toughest clash. James Botham is set to win his second cap if Josh Navidi remains sidelined with injury.

Possible team: Wyn Jones, Elliot Dee, Samson Lee, Jake Ball, Seb Davies, James Botham, Justin Tipuric, Aaron Wainwright, Lloyd Williams, Callum Sheedy, Louis Rees-Zammit, Johnny Williams, Nick Tompkins, Johnny Mcnicholl, Liam Williams.

England Team News

Joe Marler and George Ford could come in for starts against Wales, meaning Eddie Jones could select a very creative backline. Other than those two, Jones will probably keep the other 13 who swept aside Ireland last weekend.
