England get their autumn internationals underway this weekend as they host Fiji on Saturday afternoon in a game where the home side will be the big favourites at Twickenham.
This match may be taken as somewhat of a warm-up for the visit of Australia the following weekend, but Stuart Lancaster will not allow his side to be in any way complacent and has already called upon his starting fifteen to go and attack, making Twickenham a fortress for these Test matches.
The fans at Twickenham will be coming out to see a big performance from Lancaster’s men and with the daunting prospect of Australia, New Zealand and South Africa to come after this, momentum is a key thing for England and they must go into those three huge Test matches with some confidence and a big win under their belt.
There are a few injury problems for the hosts though and people may think about their match bets now with Joe Launchbury, Jonathan Joseph and Courtney Lawes all ruled out of action against Fiji.
The Head Coach looks as though he is ready to put his faith into some young, inexperienced members of the squad as well, with Exeter flanker Tom Johnson and the Saracens full-back Alex Goode both looking as though they will start on Saturday afternoon, despite not starting an international at Twickenham in the past.
A bet on a Fiji win will give you odds of 41/1 with sports betting Betfair, which goes to show that they are huge underdogs. However, they are sure to raise their game coming into this one and will be out to cause an upset.
With players such as Gloucester’s Akapusi Qera, who is arguably the stand-out back-row in the Premiership at present, they do have talent in their squad.
For some extra value on your bets for this one though, head into the half-time/full-time market, where Ladbrokes have odds of 1/18 on England leading at the break and at the end of the match.
The same bookies are then offering 14/1 on Fiji taking a surprise lead going into half-time, but the hosts fighting back and taking the spoils.
What we fancy for this one though is to look at the market for the exact amount of points England may win by and 35 points does look to be a good shout, especially with odds of 30/1 with Paddy Power.
It should be a superb afternoon of Rugby Union and show just what sort of shape England are in for the remaining Test matches.
