England triumph and win rugby world cup
<div><h2>England v South Africa – Rugby World Cup Final</h2><p><strong>Saturday 2nd November 2019</strong></p><p>It all comes down to this. England versus South Africa to find out who is the top rugby nation.</p><p>This match is a repeat from the 2007 rugby world cup final where South Africa defeated England 15-6 with five penalties converted by South Africa to England’s two. Saturday’s match will be as hotly contested, but the result will be different.</p><p>England’s performance against New Zealand in the semi-final took the world by storm. This match started with England forming a ‘V’ formation whilst New Zealand were delivering their pre-match ‘Haka’ and from the first whistle England took the game to their opponents scoring a try within the first couple of minutes from Manu Tuilagi.</p><p>From this moment until the final whistle England were dominant in every phase of the game. Up front England were more physical, in defence England were superb and all over the pitch the underdogs played the game of their lives.</p><p>As written in the semi-final preview, England could not have come into the semi-final in better form and their defence was performing the best it has ever done. This shone through in the semi-final but only conceding 7 points to New Zealand.</p><p>England are therefore favourites to win the match at 1.44 (8/15) with SkyBet and William Hill.</p><p>South Africa come into the final after a narrow win over Wales and although never behind, a lot of pundits felt South Africa would cruise through the semi-final. This never materialized so South Africa come into the final as underdogs.</p><p>After losing the first match of the tournament against New Zealand, South Africa have played some good rugby, but this came against lesser opponents. In the quarter final, they bullied Japan and showed their class in the later stages of the match by making their experience count. Against Wales, they showed glimpses of class, but never were in total command.</p><p style="text-align:center"><img alt src="https://d3gbf3ykm8gp5c.cloudfront.net/content/uploads/2019/09/24084653/George-Ford-for-England-PA.jpg" style="width:700px;height:525px" /></p><p>Onto the world cup final and the strong belief is that England will win their 2nd world cup and defeat South Africa.</p><p>Mario Itoje, man of the match in the semi-final was awesome in defence and along with Sam Underhill, the master stroke by Eddie Jones enabled the young talents to shine. With Ben Youngs and Owen Farrell playing smart rugby and George Ford kicking points well from his boot, England can repeat their 80 minute performance over New Zealand this weekend.</p><p>South Africa are a threat to England and with super talented Faf de Klerk pulling the strings for them England have to be on their toes as he has the power of dominating. With a physical approach expected, South Africa aren’t going to lie down and let England dominate and will look to keep the game close. They have Handre Polland who is a very reliable kicker in their lineup has nerves of steel and when called upon in the final, will do what’s’ needed to score points with his boot.</p><p>The top tip for the final is therefore England to win between 1-12 points at 2.4 (7/5) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Betfair</a>. England can get revenge from their defeat 12 years ago and secure their 2nd world cup win.</p><p>Our 2nd tip for the final is under 36.5 points in the match at 1.91 (10/11) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a>. With both defences strong and nerves to play apart in the early stages, we don’t expect a flurry of tries and the match to be close. England conceded 7 points to New Zealand and 16 points against Australia and with South Africa themselves conceding 16 against Wales and only 3 points against Japan, there is evidence to suggest the points total will be under. Plus, in two of the last three finals, this bet would have been a winner.</p><p>Our final tip is a long shot at the man of the match winner. Given the feeling is this match may come down to the kicking of penalties or even a drop goal, we’re putting up England’s’ reliable George Ford 17.0 (16/1) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Betfair</a> to be the man of the match in the final.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%;height:12px" /></a></p><p><strong>Best Bets:</strong></p><ul> <li>England to beat South Africa by 1-12 points on winning margin market at 2.4 (7/5) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Betfair</a></li> <li>England v South Africa total match points under 36.5 at 1.91 (10/11) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></li> <li>Man of the Match: George Ford at 17 (16/1) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Betfair</a></li></ul></div>
