This weekend we'll find out what the semi final lineup will be and might get a better idea of what is to be expected in the final, and perhaps even make a wise bet on the winner. Today though we're looking at England vs France.
Kevin the Tipster, the predicting sheep, has a 88% accuracy record so far in the tournament. Today he has a crack at the England vs France game, a match that by all means is difficult to call.
On one hand England look to be favourites based on France's inconsistency and questionable selections. On the other hand, it is France after all. They could be brilliant on the day, and certainly have the players to beat England.
Losses to New Zealand and then Tonga might say otherwise though, and we're yet to see a trademark magical performance from them. They've not been a stand out side by any means, but if they click on Saturday, will be difficult for England to cope with.
For the neutral, it's possibly the least apetising game of the weekend but we may be in for a surprise if France come to play. Imanol Harinordoquy has already said that the players have only played to half of their potential, so they'll be looking to improve on that and impress come kick off.
