England vs South Africa Betting Tips Rugby World Cup 2023 Semifinal
England came into the 2023 RWC off the back of a fourth-place finish in the recent Six Nations, where it secured 10 points. It was one of their weakest performances in the championship, ending 17 points behind the leader, Ireland. Notably, England dismissed their Head Coach, Eddie Jones, last December, replacing him with Steve Borthwick to improve their global standings.
On the other hand, the South Africans secured second place in the previous Rugby Championship with 18 points, just one point behind the champions, New Zealand. Jacques Nienaber’s team consistently performs well, although they have yet to be able to secure a win against their key rival, Ireland, in this World Cup.
