ENGLAND v FRANCE BETTING PREVIEW
Stuart Lancaster until August 31 to cut his squad down to 31 players ahead of the start of the Rugby World Cup which gets underway on Friday, September 18. Hence, we xpect England to play with plenty of vigour at Twickenham this Saturday.
Lancaster will give debuts to centre Henry Slade, flanker Calum Clark and most notably Sam Burgess, who will play at centre alongside Slade. Captain Chris Robshaw will be rested and replaced by Tom Wood. Ben Morgan will make his return from injury at number eight.

France will be looking to avenge the 55-35 defeat to England in the Six Nations back in March. The Blues have been in a state of disarray for some time now and Philippe Saint-Andre’s tenure has been nothing short of disastrous, with a 40% win rate and over 80 players used during in his time in charge. They were poor in the Six Nations as they lack the fluency and quality to really utilise their impressive array of backs.
France, surprisingly, have no new faces in their side, but that's partly because Philippe Saint-André has selected almost anyone eligible over the last four years. Captain Thierry Dusautoir will miss the game as he is recovering from a knock he took to his knee in training and hooker Dimitri Szarzewski, the most capped player in the 23-man squad, will lead the team. Remi Lamerat and Alexandre Dumoulin will start in the centres while Francois Trinh-Duc and Morgan Parra will have a chance to impress at half back.
England have won seven of the last 10 direct encounters. England are unbeaten in their last four home meetings with France, who have not won at Twickenham since Aug. 2007.
