The Twickenham Stadium will once more host an exciting rugby test match pitting ENG Rugby against WRU in a first of a double header that will serve both as a Quilter Internationals game and a Rugby World Cup 2019 warm-up match. With the WC just around the corner, this match promises to be a thriller with players vying for plane tickets to Japan.

Most Recent Match

The most recent game between these two teams came in the 2019 Six Nations tournament in which the Wales Rugby Union won by 21-13. England started the game strongly and were rewarded with a Tom Curry try and an Owen Farrell penalty giving them a 10-3 lead at the interval. However, Wales came off the break stronger and 2 penalty kicks from Anscombe followed by tries from Hill and Adams gave the Welsh side the edge over their fierce archrivals.

Head to Head

These two fierce rivals have met 132 times in test matches in their history with England winning 62 games while Wales have won 58 with the remaining 12 games ending in a draw. 66 of the 132 matches have been in England with Eddie Jones’ side  winning 39 and losing 19 to Wales and the remaining 8 finishing in a tie.

Key Players

Manu Tuilagi has worked his way back to full fitness and will provide a very good midfield option for the Englishmen. Equally on the limelight is Exeter Chiefs’ Henry Slade who’s having a very good year. Slade impressed in the Six Nations while also making it to the Premiership final and he will be looking to build on his impressive run of form.

Liam Williams is in scintillating form right now and will be looking to make the squad by pulling another excellent performance while the combination of H. Parkes and J. Davies is worth drooling over. One other player to keep tabs on is Gareth Anscombe who has seemed unstoppable in the recent past for Wales.

Game Prediction

Wales come into this game off a 2019 Six Nations Grand Slam and having won 10/10 of their past matches putting them as one of the “in form” teams in world rugby. England on the other hand have won 7 of the past 10 games with their most recent loss coming against today’s opponent, Wales. They also lost to New Zealand and drew 38-38 in their most recent game with Scotland. However, Wales have failed to win at the Twickenham Stadium since 2015 and have lost the previous 4 straight games. This game could go either way but the advantage is to the home side, England.
