There’s still a whole year to go until the first games of the Rugby Championship start. But everyone is already trying to guess who can emerge victorious from this bout. Analysts are very high on England’s chances of reaching the semifinals and even winning, so we wondered if this is really the case.
Of course, we should not take the predictions of WRC 2023 as truth. Because they are only guessing about the victory, and we should know the real result only in October of next year.
Can England win the Rugby World Cup?
Yes, the odds in the bookies are very high. The squads in England are also pretty good, so 1/5 is that the Champions Cup will actually go to England. But that’s only if the team is well-coached and can go straight to the semifinals to cement their lead on the field.
They can’t play rugby too much, or they could run out of steam. If the squads do not score the required number of points in the first matches, the re-match will simply wear them out on someone else’s field.
When the first games rugby begin and we know the results
Since the England team is in Group D, they will be playing in countries like Samoa, Argentina, and Chile. These countries have pretty strong squads, but the British team has a very good chance of making the finals, with these battles.
The first matches could start on September 9, England vs Argentina will play in Marseille. Then there should be England vs Japan, which could be on September 17. The next two matches will be against Chile and Samoa on September 23 and October 3.
After these matches, we should know all the results and the main answer to the question – of whether the team made it to the semifinals.
There have been changes in the lineup rugby and how they may affect the WRC in the new season
Yes, as sad as it sounds, many iconic veteran players have decided to retire from past competitions in 2019. That’s sad news, but don’t be too sad. Of course, we don’t know how the new cadres could play, but let’s be optimistic.
The country is showing very well on the international stage right now, many people know that there is a strong team here, and new players are training almost every day to have an advantage. The main thing is not to play a cruel joke on foreign fields, where gang members can get a little confused. Still, it’s harder to play rugby there than it is at home.
But let’s hope your favorite team makes it to the semifinals and can pick up the Gold Cup in the finals. Be sure to root for your team and place your bets if you are a gambler.
