Rugby Union: Friendly International
England ran out comfortable winners against the USA last week, but they still disappointed to a certain extent as they yet again failed to cover the spread. They handed out debuts to a handful of players, which is understandable seeing that they’ve got a big chunk of players on tour with the B&I Lions. They did however completely implode in the 2nd half and allow the men from the States to narrow the gap. a 43-29 scoreline is too small a margin against the level of opposition.
Canada were in turn thrashed by the Welsh, and we expect a similar result here on Saturday. This depleted England squad still has plenty of talent within it and more than enough to get a big win at home to Canada here.
