Wales are as good as through while England face their most difficult World Cup opponent yet, and Scotland take on Russia.

Our Betting Tips

ENGLAND V ARGENTINA

Eddie Jones’ side have picked up maximum points against Tonga and the USA, but their clash with Argentine in Chofu is their biggest World Cup test so far.

Argentina slipped up against France and need a positive result to stay in touch in Pool A, but Jones’ side look to strong.

England should have enough to win a tight game, with an England winning margin of 12+ points the way to go.

ENGLAND WINNING MARGIN 13+

SCOTLAND V RUSSIA

Scotland will be hoping that Ireland’s inconsistency continues, allowing them a route into the knockout stages from Pool A.

They strolled past Samoa with a 34-0 win in their second game, and they need a confident win against Russia to keep the pressure on Joe Schmidt’s side and Japan.

Russia have conceded 30+ in their first two games, and Gregor Townsend’s side do have power in their forward line. A comfortable win for Scotland should be the outcome.

SCOTLAND TO WIN

WALES V FIJI

Wales’ narrow win over Australia has all but ensured their qualification from Pool D, with two games to go.

Warren Gatland’s side have been impressive so far, but Fiji’s scoring so far in the competition will be a concern for Gatland.

The Fijians have scored 20+ in their first two games, with Wales conceding 39 points in their opening two games, indicating that this will be a close one.

WALES TO WIN

Statistics

Head to Head

England and Argentina last met at Twickenham in November 2017, with the hosts winning 21-8.

Russia and Scotland have never met before.

Wales were 23-13 victors the last time they faced Fiji, in the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Stats

  • Argentina’s Julian Montoya has scored four tries so far in the tournament, more than any player.
  • Ben Volavola is Fiji’s leading points scorer with 11 – one conversion and three penalties.
  • Owen Farrell and George Ford have each scored 15 points so far for England.
  • Dan Biggar’s five conversions for Wales is the second-highest in the tournament.

Our Prediction

Scotland, Wales and England to win

England should have enough to see off the threat of Argentina, while Scotland’s meeting with Russia should be a relative walk in the park. Wales, meanwhile, are as good as through to the next stage but their meeting with Fiji will be close and just edged by Warren Gatland’s side.
