THE TEAM NEWS

ENGLAND

  • England will be looking to bounce back from an underwhelming Six Nations campaign after they suffered a defeat against Wales whilst blowing a huge lead against Scotland as they were held to a draw.

  • Their focus now turns towards the World Cup with their first game of these Autumn Internationals coming against their conquerors in the Six Nations with a home game against Wales.

  • England have named a 33-man squad for this game and could hand Test debuts to flanker Lewis Ludlam and winger Ruaridh McConnochie who have been named whilst Willi Heinz also has a chance of making his international bow.

WALES

  • Wales could not have asked for a better to start to a World Cup year as they not only won the Six Nations but also completed the Grand Slam to really lay down a marker for what is to come.

  • The Welsh impressively won in France to kick-start that campaign before grinding out three more wins and finished with a superb display to suffocate Ireland in their final match and seal the title.

  • Wales are now on a 14-match unbeaten run and will look to continue their good form as they head to Twickenham with Taulupe Faletau’s #8 shirt up for grabs after he was ruled out of the World Cup with a broken collarbone.

THE PREDICTION

England and Wales will ramp up their World Cup preparations in this mouth-watering clash at Twickenham. The two teams could be experimental as both head coaches look to finalise their squads for the World Cup and will mean there are numerous players looking to put in big performances to seal their seat on the plane to Japan. Wales are on a long unbeaten run and will not want to relinquish that and can claim another win over England like they did in their last Six Nations contest.
