England v Ireland International Rugby Union
Saturday's final world cup warm up game see both sides name nearly full strength sides as the juggling stops and we get down to the serious business of picking a winning team.
England have performed averagely in their preparations for this tournament and I'm surprised that they have omitted Danny Cipriani from the squad who injected some real pace and flair into the game against France.
Twickenham will be a sell out for what is going to be a bruising encounter as players from both teams fight to keep their places for when the tournament begins in earnest. This is only a friendly in name.
Sam Burgess, who has impressed hugely since converting from Rugby League will sit this one out on the bench as Brad Barrit returns from injury and the England back row will consist of Tom Wood, captain Chris Robshaw and Ben Morgan.
Jonathan Joseph will start in the centre where he was the star performer for England against France.
With home advantage and a near full strength side betting on England to win at 1/2 is not very appealing. Ireland are a much better side than the 13/8 you can get at Coral for an Irish victory.
England will have to play much better rugby than anything they have showed in the last couple of outings and if they don't get it togther then Ireland will beat them. England may be tournament hosts but they are a long way off being contenders for the trophy.
