England will win the World Cup

With fight, skill and team spirit in abundance, England will lift the Webb Ellis Cup in Japan this summer. 

Eddie Jones will lead his England side into the Far East on the back of two excellent results against Australia and Japan. England beat the hosts of the tournament 35-15 then followed this result up with a 37-18 win over the Wallabies.

The squad will have to embody all of the characteristics that saw England crowned world champions in 2003 when a Jonny Wilkinson drop goal sealed a euphoric win in a tightly contested match against Australia.

Two key players for England will be, captain Dylan Hartley and, fly-half Owen Farrell. Farrell currently has a 68.4% win percentage when wearing the rose of England whilst Hartley boasts a 69.07% when representing his country.

               Dylan Hartley will hope to follow in Martin Johnson’s footsteps 

England have been drawn into Pool C where Jones’s men will face Tonga, France, Argentina, and the USA. France are arguably the toughest team in the pool as they reached the final in 2011 where they narrowly lost 8-7 to New Zealand.

Back to back world champions New Zealand will be England’s biggest threat to the Webb Ellis Cup as the All Blacks will look to make it a hattrick of victories.
