A Prediction? 

Well, we’ve got it wrong all along so why not carry on in that vain. Cipriani finally gets a chance to impress so let’s say that England will regain a bit of credibility and win 19-11. The weather is destined to be a bit wet and windy plus the pitch is not as fast as the previous two. Thus, fewer points. If England don’t then the only thing this blog will have got right over the last couple of weeks is that there’ll be cries of ‘Sack Him’ and crisis for the days following the game. Please, for the sake of us all, England… WIN and win well.
