England’s victory over South Africa towards the end of 2021 suggests that Eddie Jones’ side are in a good place when it comes to competing hard to be crowned champions for the second time in World Cup history. Jones will now assemble a squad over the next eighteen months and there has been money for the Six Nations challengers.

However, France are still regarded as a side who can make home advantage count, while New Zealand are always priced among the favourites and have three World Cup triumphs under their belt. The South Africans are also a force to be reckoned with.
