Rugby World Cup: England Fans Backing Fiji

England fans are getting behind Fiji to beat Wales later this week with Fiji offered at 5/1 to beat Wales who are 1/8.


“Wales have something of an injury crisis and there are a fair few English Rugby fans backing Fiji to do them a favour,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.


England are going to have to produce the goods against Australia and the latest odds from William Hill suggest that Sam Burgess will be dropped for the big match at 4/7, whilst Owen Farrell is expected to retain his place at 1/2. Whatever happens William Hill believe that both Chris Robshaw & Stuart Lancaster will retain their jobs into the Six Nations.


“We think Sam Burgess will probably be the scapegoat but Owen Farrell justified his inclusion on Saturday and we expect him to retain his place,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
