When Saturday, October 22 | 4pm BST
Where University of Bolton Stadium, Bolton

Round two of the 2022 Rugby League World Cup continues this Saturday with host nation England taking on France at the University of Bolton Stadium. England will be looking for another commanding performance, like the one they produced to destroy Samoa. France will also be looking to build momentum after their big win over Greece.

England have made several changes to their side including adding former Canberra Raiders star second rower John Bateman to the starting side with Ryan Hall. France has named an unchanged side from the one that beat Greece, giving themselves every chance of making it back-to-back wins.

France may have beaten Greece comfortably in their opening match of the World Cup, but the performance of England is one that cannot be ignored. The hosts will surely put on another big display that will see them win by 41-50 points, paying +320 with Bovada.

The additional of Hall to this already talented English side is enormous given he is England’s all-time leading tryscorer. He has scored a whopping 34 tries in 33 appearances for England. Hall will surely continue his tryscoring habits against France and is more than capable of coming away with three or more tries in the match.

Another man who will surely be in the tryscoring list for England is Jack Welsby. He has found himself in incredible tryscoring positions in his short career, scoring a worldy for St Helens in 2020 to win the Super League. Welsby’s support play in what put’s him in the right places at the right times, and he will surely be an anytime tryscorer in this match.

Given the start France have had to their World Cup campaign, it’s hard to see them going down in this match without a fight. England have showed already they can put on a huge score, and should France join the party, this will be a high-scoring match. This match going over the 55.5 total match points is one of the safer bets.

Key matchup: George Williams v Lachlan Ilias

The matchup of these two halfbacks will be incredible to watch as a benchmark for Lachlan Ilias’ progression throughout the season. His year at the South Sydney Rabbitohs started rough and improved with time, as the Rabbitohs made it to the preliminary finals in the NRL. Ilias’ kicking game and defence will again be in the spotlight, where George Williams’ running game and attacking ability will be key to England’s success. The better Ilias plays, the better France’s chances of winning.
