    Here we go! Predictions anyone? It's tough to call given the nature of the game, but I think we'll see an England victory in a scrappy game. 20-10 is my rough prediction, but in truth, I have no idea. It depends on so many things..

    Farrell and Hipkiss -- With they work well together? Will Farrell prove his critics wrong? Will Hipkiss keep his outstanding form from the GP?

    Worsely at 7 -- Will he be able to perform at openside on an international stage?

    Shaw -- Will our own personal man mountain show his true colours and lead the pack in driving back the welsh?

    There are more questions, and those are only the ones that England face... The Welsh will have many similar ones!

    So... what do you think will happen? And does it matter? Or are both coaches simply using it as a trial match?

    hard to call as you say. its just a pre-season (or rather pre-WC) friendly!

    Tough to call. Neither side has played for 2 months and it could be which team can find their rhythm on the day. England have picked possibly their strongest side, Wales have picked a mix of probables and possibles. For that reason and home advantage you'd have to favour England.

    31 - 17 in a probably poor game.

    Watch England in the RWC. They are a much better team than everyone thinks. I think they will bring it far.
    But they still won't beat the Boks.

    Guys lets be honest here. There is really only 5 teams who can win the WC.
    NZ
    AUS
    SA
    ENGLAND &
    FRANCE
    in that order, the rest just make up the numbers. Ofcourse these 5 will make the last 8 and then 4 of these 5 will make it to the S/F.
