This narrow victory was England's only against Wales in eight matches in all competitions between 1993 and 1990. And it was to be one of the only moments of joy in the tournament as they conceded 100 points, more than any other team.

Wales should hammer england out of sight,but stranger things have happened, and these young men have alot to prove.

 

I fancy a close call with england on the backfoot most of the game.

The bookies are offering rather un sporting odds on wales beating england,so i guess they think the same as me,i think wales will put 20 points on the england tally,still could,nt get good odds on that,so the consensus is england are going to get smashed!!!

With the team Lancaster has picked,yes.
