Who will win England vs New Zealand?

If you went to the dictionary and looked up tough plus all its synonyms, you'll probably find All Blacks listed as the definition for all of them. That's simply how good New Zealand are.

New Zealand absolutely manhandled Ireland in the quarter-finals. The New Zealanders played right until the final minute scoring a try on the siren. It's that type of relentlessness that will send shivers through the England camp.

England were one of the more fancied sides heading into the tournament. In fact they've remained a contender throughout but are really yet to be challenged. You can only beat what's put in front of you, but that could work against England in this match.

England coach Eddie Jones has promoted George Ford from the bench to start at fly-half. This seems to be an indication that England believe they need to beat the All Blacks with their attack.

Predicting New Zealand to win might be the easy option, though trying to go past the All Blacks who have the finest player in the world in Beauden Barrett and are the best side on Earth is near impossible.

History of England vs New Zealand

The first rugby match between England and New Zealand was played back in 1905. Since then, they've contested 41 matches overall. New Zealand typically get the better of the English, winning 33 matches to 7.

In more recent times though England have presented a much stiffer challenge. New Zealand have won the last six straight but five of them were by eight points or less.
