Tip Wales - England

There are only two unbeaten teams after the first couple of matches in this year's Six Nations Championship. England top the table on points difference from Wales and whoever wins this game will be clear favourites to go on and win the title. England have impressed most this year with a big win in Ireland followed by a hammering of France at Twickenham. After this game in Cardiff, their final two games are both at home against Italy and Scotland with wins expected in both those matches. A Six Nations title and a Grand Slam would be great preparation for their World Cup bid later this year. They will be without winger Chris Ashton for this game and is likely to be replaced by Jack Nowell. 

Wales have been boosted by the news that both Leigh Halfpenny and Dan Biggar have resumed training and could play in this game. They opened their campaign with a comeback win in France. Wales trailed 16-0 in that game and if in a similar position this weekend, getting back into the game won't be so easy. That win over France was followed by a 26-15 win away to Italy. England have won six of their last seven games against Wales and the last two in Cardiff. A tight game is likely with five of those last seven being won by six points or less. England have the momentum going into ths game and can get the win to make it three out of three.

Key points Wales - England

  • England have won six of their last seven games against Wales.

  • England's physical dominance has proved unstoppable so far this year.

  • England have won six of their last seven games, the other being a defeat by New Zealand.

Conclusion Wales - England

England have begun their Six Nations campaign in style with two dominant performances. They look to make it three in a row when traveling to Wales who they have an excellent recent record against. Six of the last seven England games have seen them win and another victory looks likely here. Go for England to win the game and go clear at the top of the table.
