🔍 England v Ireland Winner Prediction

This England v Ireland match will be met with hyperbole, bluster, and banter in the media. Both sets of fans will be expecting a tight game, but will that be the reality of the situation? Let us take a look in with our key indicators to see if we can spy a likely result.


The first England v Ireland match took place in 1875, and 141 matches have been played since. England have won 80 of those and Ireland have won 53. There have also been eight draws. That may give England rugby fans some hope, but given more recent history of the Irish claiming a 29-16 victory in last year's competition and having beaten England again in the summer, 29-10, I think this predictor actually points to a win for the Men in Green.

Last Performances

Italy v England24-27
England v Wales16-14
Scotland v England30-21
Ireland MatchesResult
France v Ireland17-38
Ireland v Italy36-0
Ireland v Wales31-7

It is difficult to compare the quality of two scraped wins and a loss to Scotland by England to Ireland's three big wins, including an absolutely stunning performance against France in the first round. To me, this speaks volumes about the huge potential for Ireland to claim a fourth victory for 2024.

World Rankings

England are slumped in fifth position, whereas Ireland find themselves shy of their former number-one spot only to South Africa. This seems another nail in the coffin for England.

Home Advantage

Playing at Twickenham, you would imagine England to have some advantage. I think this will play some small part in how the final score will end up, but I think this will more be a matter of cushioning the blow than swinging the game in England's favour.


The English weather seems as if it will behave, considering the forecast of 14°C and gentle sunshine, but I do not think this will particularly benefit either side.

Game Play Styles

English rugby has been slated in the popular press of late for England's boring kicking game and uncoordinated attacking structure. Steve Borthwick has had plenty of time to stamp his mark on his team, yet fans have seen no clue of how the team are looking to develop.

Ireland, on the other hand, continue to excel playing physical rugby, averaging 100 rucks per game. They also effortlessly interchange between the 1-3-3-1 and 2-2-2-2 systems, which offers great confusion to opposition sides. Seeing Ireland play in recent times has been like watching a rugby masterclass.

There is no doubt in my mind that on styles of play, Ireland look the healthier to grab all of the points.

Winner Summary

England are alone in the rugby wilderness, yet to find a clearing in the trees. We are building seems to be the thinking of Steve Borthwick, but that seemed to be the soundbite to the lacklustre performances that saw Eddie Jones removed from the Head Coach role.

Ireland are the best team in the Northern Hemisphere by a country mile, and I believe they are well on their way to winning the Six Nations 2024. This will be a case of a dominant powerhouse turning out the lights on England's dreams. The Irish are in for at least a 12-point win on Saturday.

✔️ England v Ireland Betting Tips

1️⃣ Match Winner: Ireland to Win

With a team like Ireland playing a lesser team like Ireland, it is not a surprise that the bookies are not offering much in the way of a potential return for the favourite. Nonetheless, if you are looking to have a flutter solely on the match winner, your best option from my favourite bookies is Ireland to win at 1.23 at 1Bet Sports.

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: England to Win (+12.5)

I have this one down as a 12-point win to Ireland. I do not think the handicap options are that great for this match, so assuming I am 100% correct - remember that there are no guarantees in rugby - my best pick would be England to win (+12.5) at 1.88 at 1Bet Sports. Would I personally go for that bet? I am not sure if I would as even an 13-point victory for Ireland, which could well happen with the dominance I am expecting them to display, would mean you losing your bet. It is up to you how you feel about this one, but just remember to gamble responsibly!
