The players certainly look ready, but are you? The first semi-final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup between England and New Zealand would have made a worthwhile final, with it featuring arguably the tournament’s two most impressive teams. A place in the Rugby World Cup final is at stake, but which team will run out as victors? Watch the action as it happens today with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide.
It really throws up the possibility of a classic match with both teams seemingly peaking at just the right time. England looked in control throughout their superb victory against Australia in the quarter finals, while New Zealand sent out a statement of their own with their 46-14 demolition of Ireland.
England’s win over the Aussies ensured they advanced to the semi-finals of the Rugby World Cup for the first time in 12 years. The big news ahead of this huge clash is that George Ford has been handed a shock recall to the side at fly-half by head coach Eddie Jones, with captain Owen Farrell switching to inside centre. Henry Slade makes way for Ford, while Mark Wilson replaces Lewis Ludlam on the bench.Scott Barrett comes in for New Zealand at blindside flanker, strengthening the size of the All Blacks’ pack, while Ardie Savea moves from six to seven. Meanwhile, Patrick Tuipulotu has been shifted out to the bench, along with Sam Cane.The last meeting between the two teams saw New Zealand score a narrow 15-16 victory at Twickenham just under a year ago. The game promises to be an equally close encounter. The All Blacks go into the game as favourites, but England certainly have enough to pull off an against-the-odds win.
