England vs Japan preview
England and Japan meet for their second game of the 2023 Rugby World Cup on Sunday. Both started their campaigns with a win and will want to build on that momentum in Nice.
England impressed in defeating an under-par Argentina last weekend. They won 27-10, despite having only 14 men for almost the entirety of the match. All their points came from the feet of George Ford. Given the criticism the side faced heading into this tournament, that victory will serve as a huge boost ahead of what will likely be a difficult match against the Brave Blossoms.
Japan were thoroughly convincing as they overcame Chile 42-12 in their tournament opener. That impressive margin of victory meant that they finished the first round of matches top of Pool D. They have previously seen off the likes of Ireland, Scotland and South Africa, so will not be intimidated by England.
England remain without skipper Owen Farrell, who is serving the last game of his suspension. Tom Curry is suspended for two games after that red card against Argentina. Japan captain Kazuki Himeno should be fit to return, despite getting an injury just before his team’s match against Chile.
