England continue their 2015 World Cup build up today when they take on South Africa in the second of their Autumn International Fixtures (2.30 Kick-Off, Live on Sky Sports). Both sides suffered reversals last week, and both will be looking to return to winning ways at Twickenham this afternoon.
England now find themselves on a 4 match losing run (in fairness all four were to New Zealand), and are anxious to avoid another loss and getting into the habit of losing. South Africa also suffered a reversal last time out, losing quite convincingly to Ireland – and Jonathan Sexton in particular – at the Aviva Stadium last Saturday.
England go into today’s fixture as favourites, they are currently a best price of 9/10 with Betway. There isn’t a great deal in it in fairness, as South Africa are a best price of 6/5 with Boylesports.
If you fancy a close match, the draw is a best price of 20/1 with bet365. If you haven’t already got a bet365 account, you can open one here and claim a £200.00 Welcome Bonus.
Also today, Betfred are running their Double Delight Promotion on England V South Africa, Wales V Fiji, Scotland V New Zealand and France V Australia. With Double Delight, if your player scores the first try of the match and then goes on to score another, Betfred will double your first try scorer price.
The offer only applies to bets placed before the match starts by mobile or online. If you haven’t already got a Betfred account, you can open one here and claim double the odds on your first bet, and a free £25.00 bet on your second bet.
The 2015 Rugby World Cup is less than a year away now, and last week showed that England are a long way behind current holders New Zealand. Anything other than a victory over South Africa today would be a massive set back for Stuart Lancaster and his World Cup plans.
