Saturday’s Rugby World Cup semi-final in Yokohama is shaping up as a cracker contest between the two form teams in the competition.

England made a big statement last weekend when they thumped Australia 40-16 to reach the last four of the RWC for the first time in 12 years.

That win means the Brits carry a perfect 4-0 record into their clash with New Zealand, who also boast an unblemished slate after their 46-14 pummelling of Ireland.

Only one of these sides will finish the weekend unbeaten, but whichever team advances is likely to start as favourite against either South Africa or Wales in the RWC 2019 final.

England RWC team news

Coach Eddie Jones may be tempted to stick with the same XV that dismantled Australia last weekend, but there are a few questions to be answered.

Jonny May appeared to tweak his hamstring late in that game, but it is expected he will suit up for Saturday’s semi-final.

Jack Nowell could also be declared fit to play, while George Ford made a strong case for a starting spot with his efforts from the bench against the Wallabies.

New Zealand RWC team news

The All Blacks have made two changes to the squad that beat Ireland last week.

Coach Steve Hansen has brought in Scott Barrett to start at blindside flanker, which sees Ardie Savia move to the openside slot and Sam Cane drop to the bench.

Reserve flanker Matt Todd re-injured his shoulder in the win over Ireland, so Patrick Tuipulotu joins the matchday squad as lock cover.

England vs New Zealand RWC betting predictions

England -7 handicap – -111.11 at BetOnline
This is a very good England team that will not go down without a proper fight. The Brits were superb in the win over the Wallabies, where Jones’ crafty tactical plays showed why modern rugby union is a 23-man game. Whichever way it goes, this should be a much tighter affair than either side’s quarter-finals.

Beauden Barrett anytime tryscorer – +125 at BetOnline
When it comes to the final few rounds of the tournament, every team needs their big guns to step up and make something happen. New Zealand’s star fullback is one of those players you can rely on to produce a clutch kick, a gutsy run, or a clean finish when it counts.

New Zealand to win by 1-12 points – +160 at BetOnline
The All Blacks know how to win games of rugby – that’s a fact. Even when they are off the boil, they find a way to get it done. They also have an excellent record facing England, against whom they have lost only seven games out of 41. It should be a super contest, but the Kiwis will go through.
