Fortune favours the Brave
If these two teams are capable of delivering a second game to the level of last weeks cracker then roll on Saturday because we cant wait.
England have 5 players returning to a side that played exceptional, error free rugby. Billy Twelvetrees is immense in the centre. He makes yards over the gain line regularly, his tackling is superb and he reads the game as well as anyone. Tom Woods is mammoth in the pack and Danny Care and Owen Farrell give us an embarrassment of riches in the halfs and kicking department.
So that’s it then, we bring 5 even better players in to the team and we nearly won last time so we win this time, right? Not so fast Speedy Gonazalez. There is a little matter of the team in Black who regularly put out the best 15 players in the World. A team that simply don’t lose. A team that have only lost twice at Dunedin since 1963.
The facts don’t lie – the All Blacks go in to this game as massive favourites because everyone believes last Saturday is the worst they can play. That may be right – but it better be.
We will improve 15% on what we achieved last week and obviously New Zealand need to improve similarly or they will lose.
Either way it promises to be a cracker and the prices quoted by the layers are wrong. We need to take advantage of this price line now.
