England host Ireland in the Autumn Nations Cup at Twickenham on Saturday. They both won their opening matches convincingly so this could be the match that decides who tops the table and has a shot at the Autumn Nations Cup title.

England Form


England came into the Autumn Nations Cup as favourites, and rightly so after winning the 2020 Six Nations just one a fortnight ago.

During their Six Nations campaign England saw off tough competition for the title by Ireland and France. It was England’s home form that carried them through and I expect the same this weekend.

England went through the campaign winning four of their five matches. Their one defeat came on the opening weekend in Paris against France. The English beat Italy 34-5 in Rome on the final weekend which proved enough to win the title.

England began their Autumn Nations Cup with a dominant 40-0 win over Georgia. Hardly an unexpected result but Eddie Jones managed to blood some younger players which will please him.

England News


Centre Manu Tuilagi and lock Courtney Lawes are both unavailable for the Autumn Nations Cup.

Eddie Jones picked a few youngsters last week but we could see the experienced campaigners return against Ireland. Flank Sam Underhill has returned to England's squad with Jack Willis left out.

Ireland Form


Ireland finished their Six Nations campaign in third place. They had a chance to win the title from England on the final day but needed victory away against France. They ended up losing 35-27.

The earlier rounds of the Six Nations saw Ireland beat Scotland at home 19-12, Wales at home 24-14 before losing 24-12 to England at Twickenham. The Six Nations was then suspended due to the pandemic.

Ireland smashed Italy 50-17 upon their return before that loss to France.

The Irish won their opening Autumn Nations Cup match 32-9 against Wales in Dublin. Ireland will in all likelihood have to win here if they hope to top the table and have a shot at the Autumn Nations Cup title.

Ireland Team News


Ireland head coach, Andy Farrell made seven changes last week after a disappointing defeat to France. He is likely to stick with a similar line-up.

Jonny Sexton was taken from the field early with injury and looks a big doubt. Billy Burns may get the chance to fill the fly-half birth.

England vs Ireland Head to Head


England have won five of their last seven matches against Ireland, including the last three. When they met earlier this season in the Six Nations, England won 24-12 at Twickenham.

England vs Ireland Odds

England vs Ireland Match Up


As is usually the case between these two sides, we expect a huge physical confrontation. Ireland are however too reliant on physical dominance and unless Conor Murray can tactically dominate with the boot, England should be too strong.
