SIX NATIONS RUGBY ROUND 3

WALES VS ENGLAND

SATURDAY FEBRUARY 27, 4.45 PM, PRINCIPALITY STADIUM, CARDIFF

A huge match awaits in the Welsh capital, as the English will be desperate to win, while Wales are the surprise leaders of the Six Nations after their opening wins, beating Ireland and Scotland.  Wales can get one hand on the trophy, by beating the English, and have the destiny of the competition in their own hands when they meet the French, if they can get one over the English side.  England will be out to avenge their soft start to the tournament, that saw them lose against Scotland, before doing the business against Italy, as one would expect they should have, and need the win to keep their chances alive of defending their trophy.  Cold but sunny and wind-free game-time conditions await in the newly named stadium, at Cardiff, as both teams have everything to play for, in what should be a stunner of a game.

George North returns and will play his 100th test for Wales, and becomes the youngest Welshman ever to achieve such a feat, he is joined in the backs by fellow returnees Jon Davies and Josh Adams, who was suspended for violating a Covid-19 protocol.  The other two Welsh changes see Hardy get his first Six Nations start in the halves and Navidi return from an injury in the forwards at the expense of Wainwright.  For England, there are just two starting-side changes, with hooker Jamie George given the tough assignment and Mark Wilson coming in to play flanker, in what are a pair of all-in gambles, as the English need to win.  Daly gets a 50th cap for England, while forward George Martin is in line to debut from the bench, should he get the call during the game.

England beat the Welsh by just 3 points in a 63-point bonanza, last March just before lockdown took its toll on the competition; while later on in the autumn, England again beat Wales in the Nations Cup match, 24-13 in Wales.  These wins do give England a firm edge in confidence stakes, but a lot of that might have gone out the window, when the Welsh beat Scotland and Ireland, as they look to win the Grand Slam for the 2nd time in 3 seasons.  England are firm $1.50 favourites to blow the competition wide open, while the Welsh are $3, in stunning odds, given their start to the season, while the predicted margin is sensibly just 5 points, giddy-up Rugby lovers, Six Nations rugby doesn’t get much bigger than this!

PREDICITON: Wales to sneak a win, and get 1 hand on the trophy, by 6.

BETTING TIP: $3.20 for Wales to win by 1-12 makes sense.
