RUGBY LEAGUE WORLD CUP
Australia v England
This RLWC is clearly Australia’s to lose given their mind-bogglingly strong squad and with the side they’ve named to take on England there’s really only one result on the table and that’s an emphatic ‘statement’ victory to the home side.
Every position in the Kangaroos side is filled with a world class player, many of whom are coming into this off the back of scintillating form shown throughout the NRL finals and they’ll be itching to stretch the legs again after a decent break.
The English side are no mugs themselves with a solid enough looking forward pack and enough NRL experience throughout their squad to know what is required to compete with the Aussies but they’re a tier below the Kangaroos in nearly every position.
The English side will compete early but as the game wears on the Kangaroos will start to land blows and will overwhelm them through the pace and accuracy in everything they do. The line is a large one for the Kangaroos to cover but they’re on a different planet to the rest of the sides in this competition and will prove that here with a huge victory. Pick - 3 units on Australia -16.5 or better point start
