On Saturday 17th August, Cardiff’s streets will once again be bustling with the cheers and celebrations of rugby fans as Wales play long-time foes England at the iconic Principality Stadium. This will be the second time the two teams face off as part of their 2019 World Cup preparations, following a fixture at Twickenham Stadium on 11th August.
Wales will be hoping for a convincing win on the back of their 2019 Guinness Six Nations Grand Slam victory under head coach Warren Gatland. They also achieved their highest World Rugby ranking (2nd) and a record 14-match winning streak this winter.
However, England will have a point of their own to prove after a 21-13 defeat against Wales at the Principality Stadium in February. With both teams wanting to get their Japan preparations successfully under way, this is sure to be a hotly contested competition that rugby fans will not want to miss!
