One of the greatest matches of the Six Nations rugby tournament 2016, for both teams, takes place at Twickenham Stadium at four pm on the 12th of March. These teams will face each other both in hope of victory.
England are ahead of Wales by one point with two games. A victory will see them win the cup. A Welsh victory would see them go one point ahead of England and both teams will have to play their last game with 100% effort. A draw will see the same outcome as a Welsh victory but England will be one point ahead rather than Wales.
Statistically, it will be a tight game but England will win. England have a better penalty and conversion success ratio then Wales, this stands at 2 successful kicks for every 3 opportunities for England and 13 scored for every 16 kicks for Wales. England also edges forward in lineouts steal by 1, metres made by 27, won 5 more lineouts and have gained 6 more points.
The advantages for Wales are kicks forward to shorten the distance from them and the opponents posts and try line, beaten one more defender than England, lost 5 less lineouts, less yellow cards, eleven less penalties conceded and two more penalties won.
Overall, we think England will win a great, exciting but intense and serious game of rugby.
