Jonny May can look to comfortably become the top try-scorer for England

<div><h2><strong>Top Points Scorer at World Cup 2019</strong></h2><p>The top points scorer at the World Cup usually comes from one of the well fancied teams and likely to be a kicker from one of the finalists who also pops up with a few tries.</p><p>Our tip for this years World Cup’s top point scorer is South Africa’s Handre Pollard. With South Africa facing a couple of World Cup minnows in the group stages, we fancy Pollard to collect a decent number of points.</p><p>Combining his superb kicking, Pollard also contributes considerably by way of tries and this bonus can secure him with landing top points scorer at the World Cup.</p><p>From our first futures preview, we do fancy South Africa to comfortably qualify through the group stages and whether finishing first or second (given they face new Zealand) the route to the final will see them face weaker northern hemisphere countries, who will not be able to cope with the combative nature and skillfull play of South Africa.</p><p><strong>Top Points Scorer at Rugby World Cup 2019</strong></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Rugby World Cup Betting Odds"><strong>Tip: Handre Polland (South Africa) to be top points scorer at Rugby World Cup 2019 at 6.0 (5/1) with Betfred</strong></a></p><p style="text-align:center"><img alt src="https://e2.365dm.com/18/03/768x432/skysports-jonny-may-england_4253486.jpg?20180312072117" style="width:700px;height:394px" /></p><h2><strong>Top England Try Scorer</strong></h2><p>England’s lightning quick winger can be the star of this year’s World Cup for the Eddie Jones’ men. Jonny May had a very good Six Nations earlier on in the year scoring a try against Ireland, Scotland, Italy and a hat-trick against France.</p><p>The French defence will therefore not look forward to facing May in the group stages as he will be looking to add to his tries against France. Also in England’s group are USA, plus Tonga and Argentina, so May will be licking his lips to get on the scoresheet against all of these teams and announce himself on the world stage.</p><p>Being the main winger in the English team, if May stays fit throughout the tournament, which England will be hopeful of reaching at least the semi-finals, May can look to comfortably be the top England try scorer.</p><p>Competition can come from Joe Cokanasiga, Elliot Daly and full back Anthony Watson, but with May always ready to receive a pass in front of the try line, we expect May to score the most tries for England at World Cup 2019</p><p><strong>Top England Try Scorer</strong></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Rugby World Cup Betting Odds"><strong>Tip: Jonny May to be England’s top try scorer at 3.5 (5/2) with Betfred</strong></a></p><p style="text-align:center"><img alt src="https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/364f430407f5011f48bf634beb7ac392?width=700" style="width:700px;height:394px" /></p><h2><b>Top New Zealand Try Scorer</b></h2><p>Favourites New Zealand are going to take some beating in this year’s tournament and with a comfortable group except South Africa, New Zealand will score plenty of tries.</p><p>Enter the young winger Sevu Reece. He has burst onto the scene in a big way and he has all the attributes of former New Zealand wingers Lomu and Rokocoko who all set the world alight with their lightning speed and huge strength.</p><p>New Zealand face minnows Namibia, Canada plus Italy where the All Blacks are expected to score plenty of tries and Reece will be on hand to deliver many of these as he looks to carry on his superb form playing for Crusaders, where he scored fifteen tries.</p><p>Others who may challenge Reece include winger Rieko Ioane along with George Bridge and influential skipper Beauden Barrett. However, we feel the raw enthusiasm and eagerness of Reece will enable him to be on hand to deliver the most tries for New Zealand in the World Cup.</p><p><b>Top New Zealand Try Scorer</b></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Rugby World Cup Betting Odds"><b>Tip: Seve Reece to be top New Zealand try scorer 4.0 (3/1) with BetFred</b></a></p></div>
