England v Ireland Six Nations Match Preview


Both England and Ireland will be desperately seeking the win which could boost their chances of taking the 2022 Six Nations title from the Grand Slam-chasing French.


Physical encounter

Make no bones about it, this meeting between England and Ireland at Twickenham on Saturday afternoon is going to extremely physical and we’re anticipating a closely-fought clash which really could go either way. There’s plenty of talent in the packs here with no less than ten of the sixteen starters having been on British Lions tours, England prop Kyle Sinckler one such player who, alongside Ellis Genge, will be up against Tadhg Furlong and Cian Healy in the front row.


Lions team-mates

In the second row, Lions team-mates Tadhg Beirne and Mark Itoje will face each other while Peter O’Mahony will keep his position in the Irish back row opposite home captain Courtney Lawes. England’s forwards likely have the edge here and they will bring to the Irish a physicality that they haven’t been used to for some time.



Nevertheless Ireland are without doubt one of the world’s most cohesive sides right now and in order for England to get the better of them they must upset their rhythm. The visitors head into this match as odds-on favourites to secure a maximum points haul, however their cohesiveness could be their undoing given that the players will be relying on patters and tempo which England will look to disrupt. Should the pattern and tempo break down at Twickenham on Saturday afternoon, then Ireland could be there for the taking.


Betting markets

As far as the betting is concerned, the outright market isn’t tempting given that this looks set to be a very closely-fought affair and with that in mind, we’ll be siding with each side to win by a margin of 1-5.
