Tip England - New Zealand

New Zealand are only two games away from becoming the first country to win three successive Rugby World Cup finals. They take on England in the semi-finals with either Wales or South Africa (who they've already beaten) waiting in the final. New Zealand have an incredible record in this competition winning     They won the three pool games that were able to be played and then destroyed Ireland 46-14 in the quarter final. The All-Blacks have won 15 of their last 16 matches played against England. Their last defeat to them was at Twickenham in 2012. Their last meeting saw New Zealand beat England by a single point at Twickenham in 2018. That's the only game played between these two nations since 2014.

England have won all of their four matches that were able to be played. They haven't always been that impressive but were in top form as they put 40 points past Australia in the quarter finals. They know full well that New Zealand are the favourites to win this game and the pressure is on the All-Blacks, though they are rather used to that situation. The All-Blacks have already beaten South Africa and Ireland, another wide margin victory isn't that likely here. England will make them fight hard but the tip here is for New Zealand to win the match and reach another final.
