England began the 2023 Rugby Globe Cup robust with a victory more than Japan in Good. The group struggled in the 1st half but enhanced in the second, scoring 4 tries for a worthwhile bonus point. This win puts England in a favorable position with just Chile and Samoa left to face in Pool D.
In Pool D, England is grouped with Japan, Argentina, Samoa, and Chile. Their subsequent game will be against Chile in Lille on Saturday, September 23.
Tom Curry will not be readily available for England’s subsequent game due to a two-match ban for a unsafe tackle against Argentina. Nevertheless, captain Owen Farrell is back in the choice pool following serving a 4-match ban.
If England progresses as one particular of the top rated two teams in Pool D, they are probably to face Australia, Wales, or Fiji from Pool C in the quarter-finals. Nevertheless, Samoa ought to not be underestimated as they have shown improvements. Only in the semi-finals would England potentially face a group ranked in the top rated 5 in the globe.
