England vs Tonga betting preview  

England should win comfortably enough this very physical test

England were sluggish in their final warm-up against Italy before opening up after half-time and it could be similar this weekend. Prior to that, they thrashed Ireland 57-15. Eddie Jone's men finished as runners up to Wales in the RBS Six Nations earlier this year, winning 3 of their 5 matches. Their only defeat came in Cardiff and they were also pegged back by the Scotland in a thrilling draw at Twickenham. The big concern over England is their tendency to collapse when in front. It is a frailty seen time and again since the start of the 2018 summer tour to South Africa and it cost them dear in the recent Six Nations.

England want to start the tournament with a statement and to that end have named their strongest available side that shows only two changes to the team that flattened Ireland in record fashion at Twickenham last month. Head coach Eddie Jones has selected Joe Marler, Jamie George and Kyle Sinckler in the front row. Manu Tuilagi is named at outside centre with Elliot Daly, Jonny May and Anthony Watson making up the back three. Owen Farrell will captain the side at inside centre with George Ford starting at 10.

Replacements: 16 Luke Cowan-Dickie, 17 Ellis Genge, 18 Dan Cole, 19 George Kruis, 20 Lewis Ludlam, 21 Willi Heinz, 22 Henry Slade, 23 Jonathan Joseph.

Tonga have never progressed beyond the pool stage

In the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Tonga failed to trouble New Zealand and Argentina and they were also turned over by Georgia leaving them with just 1 win which came against Namibia. The Pacific Islanders have struggled in 2019, they have a solitary Test win from five outings – beating Canada last month. A few weeks ago suffered a 92-7 thrashing by reigning world champions New Zealand in a warm-up match and there is a danger they could be on the end of another hammering against England.

Tonga are missing two of their big names in Telusa Veainu and Steve Mafi but have a World Cup legend in Toutai Kefu at the helm..Flyhalf Kurt Morath brings loads of hope to the Tonga side and needs to be in fine form on Sunday. Bristol centre Siale Piutau along with Cooper Vuna add experience to the backline
