England vs USA Match Preview


England have a quick turnaround between fixtures with their second Rugby World Cup clash taking place just four days from their opener. They run out against the USA in Kobe City on Thursday.

If you are a fan of simple yes or no bets, there’s 28/10 if you decide no when it comes to the first try being converted or 2/7 on yes.

There is 4/6 on the second half being the Highest Scoring Half, a probability as the USA run out of steam and you can have 12/10 if you think the first half will see the most points scored.

This is a fixture that should be straight forward and England should keep marching on through Pool C, one that won’t cause them too many problems as far as advancing in the tournament. They are now looking to assert dominance and prove their credentials as a possible World Cup winning side.
