Saturday’s match at Twickenham marks a year until the 2015 Rugby World Cup and England’s last game against the All Blacks until the competition

Recommendation

New Zealand -7 10/11 William Hill

England face a tough task at the weekend, they lost 3-0 to the All Blacks away in the summer, and go into the match with over 10 players out injured.

The All Blacks had another successful season and come to the game “match ready”, which is not always the case for Northern Hemispehere tours. This time they broke their journey beating the USA 74-6 in Chicago. Whilst fatigue can be a factor at the end of a long season, the cohesiveness that comes from a series of Internationals can prove vital against an England team playing its first test since the summer with a very altered line-up.

Since Steve Hansen took over, the All Blacks have lost just two of 38 Test matches. They are the best side in the world, playing against a side patched together and playing from scratch

I was surprised to see New Zealand only -7 on the handicap (10/11 generally). This is a team that not only has become used to winning the tight matches but if it is on top it piles on scores. Bet365 offer 17/10 New Zealand to win by more than 13 points, if you want a bit more juice for your bet than the simple handicap

The New Zealand team will have to face down the English side’s strength, a strong pack of forwards. Once they do so they have a line up of backs that can score from anywhere, gonig against inexperienced wingers

In Israel Dagg, Conrad Smith, Sonny Bill Williams and especially the fantastic winger Julian Savea (30 tries in 29 tests, 8 tries in four tests against England) New Zealand have match-winners

New Zealand -7 10/11 William Hill
