England Rugby World Cup Squad 2015 - England Betting Odds

England have an illustrious history in Rugby World Cups and will go into the 2011 tournament hoping to write another chapter in their history, their finest hour of course came back in 2003 when they won the Rugby World Cup in Australia. They went through a spell in the build up to that tournament as the top side in the world and they proved they can play well when favourites to lift the Webb Ellis Trophy Down Under. Following that success in 2003, the England team went through a period of transition as they tried to build ont hat success and they have so far struggled to match that great team of 2003.

England have still had their successes since 2003, most notably when they went all the way to the World Cup Final in 2007 when most gave them no chance, Brian Ashton managed to utilise the teams strengths and they showed they relish playing on the big stage. It was not to be back-to-back victories though for England as they went down fighting against South Africa at the Stade De France. Despite reaching the Final, England were criticised for their style of play and that is something that new Coach Martin Johnson has been trying to improve in the build up to the 2011 tournament.

Martin Johnson took over as Head Coach of the England Team in July 2008 and for a long time he struggled in his first Management role, the World Cup winning captain was given the backing of the RFU and finally the fortunes of the team seem to be turning. In recent months there have been some encouraging signs for England with some young players beginning to show their potential as some good results to their name. England beat Australia both home and away in 2010 through expansive running rugby to the delight of their fans.

England are not at the level they were in 2003 and that is reflected in their latest odds for the World Cup but they do look to be building slowly in the right direction, young players like Ben Youngs, Chris Ashton and Ben Foden have had a big impact and could make a real name for themselves in New Zealand. If they do fire then England will go along way in New Zealand and could just prove to be the top team from the Northern Hemisphere heading south for the World Cup. England are the favourites in Pool B to progress top to the last eight of the World Cup, they face Argentina and Scotland but should prove too strong both of those teams if on form.
