Tip England - Ireland

Ireland have won both of their matches in the 2020 Six Nations tournament. They are joint leaders of the championship on nine points alongside France but will have a tough game against fourth placed England. The English side are five points behind their opponents after a win and loss in their first two games. This is a real family affair as on the English side is Owen Farrell and the Irish team is coached by his father Andy. England have to win this game or their hopes of winning the title will be all but over. They have a good recent record against their opponents though with victories in each of the last two meetings. They won in Ireland last year and then hammered them 57-15 in a World Cup warm-up match. Ireland have only one win at Twickenham since 2010, that was a 24-15 victory two years ago. 

Ireland have so far had wins over Scotland and Wales and that makes this an even more important game for them. A win over England won't win them the title but it will give them the Triple Crown. Both of their wins have come on home soil and after this match, they host Italy before a vital away trip to France on the last weekend. Having to play both England and France away from home isn't going to be easy for them. England have the home advantage here, their first game at Twickenham since nearly winning the World Cup. Go for a home win here in what should be a great match.

Key points England - Ireland

  • Ireland have only had one win against England at Twickenham since 2010.

  • England have won their last two games against Ireland.

  • England's home advantage will be a major factor here.

Conclusion England - Ireland

England dare not lose this match if they want to win the Six Nations title. They recovered well from the loss in France to gain victory away in Scotland. Home advantage is going to be a major factor here with England always difficult to beat at Twickenham. Both of Ireland's win have come at home and the tip here is for an England victory.
