England vs Canada Predictions
England were far from convincing against the USA last week and struggled defensively. They should win comfortably but Canada are backed to lose by less than 55 points.
- England have lost 3 of their last 6 matches.
- England have not covered the -55 handicap in their last 10 matches.
- England beat the USA 43-29 last week.
- Canada have lost by less than 55 points in 9 of their last 12 matches.
Head to Head
This is the first ever meeting between the two sides.
England are using these internationals to build towards the future by giving plenty of youngsters a run. The majority of their first choice players are with the British & Irish Lions while others are being rested.
A disappointing 2021 Six Nations campaign has now been put behind them, but they will hope to improve on last week against the USA. England managed to win the match 43-29 after conceding late tries, but that margin is far too small given that USA are a tier two side.
Canada are probably a slightly lower quality of opposition compared to the USA. Yet given the amount of debutants the 55 point handicap looks very big for England.
England Injuries & Team News
Eddie Jones handed out 12 debut jerseys last week and will add another four this Saturday. Aex Dombrandt, Harry Wells, Dan Kelly and Adam Radwan all make their first England appearance this weekend.
Canada will be looking forward to this encounter, as they did against Wales last week. These opportunities to play the big nations only really come around every few years.
Against Wales, Canada started well but as the game went on Wales’ superiority told. A 68-12 defeat at the Principality is not an embarrassment for a side like Canada, but they will hope to tighten up their defence this weekend.
Canada Injuries & Team News
Canada have reported no new injury concerns. There will likely be a few changes given that this is an opportunity to test the depth of Canadian rugby.
