Preview

Both England and Uruguay will bid farewell to the World Cup after this fixture but they will want to leave their fans something positive to remember.

It’s a big game for…

Danny Care: This time last year, it was hard to consider a side without the Harlequins captain. Now, with an increase of form from Richard Wigglesworth and Ben Youngs, Care finds himself in his first World Cup appearance this year. Now he has a fine chance to prove his supporters right.

Teams...

England: Alex Goode; Anthony Watson, Henry Slade, Owen Farrell, Jack Nowell; George Ford, Danny Care; Nick Easter, Chris Robshaw, James Haskell, Geoff Parling, Joe Launchbury; Dan Cole, Tom Youngs, Mako Vunipola.

Replacements: Jamie George, Joe Marler, David Wilson, George Kruis, Tom Wood, Richard Wigglesworth, Jonathon Joseph, Mike Brown.

Uruguay: Gaston Mieres; Santiago Gibernau, Joaquin Prada, Andres Vilaseca, Rodrigo Silva; Felipe Berchesi, Agustin Ormaechea; Mateo Sanguinetti, Carlos Arboleya, Mario Sagario; Santiago Vilaseca (captain), Jorge Zerbino; Juan Manuel Gaminara, Matias Beer, Alejandro Nieto.

Replacements: Nicolas Klappenbach, Oscar Duran, Alejo Corral, Mathias Palomeque, Diego Magno, Agustin Alonso, Alejo Duran, Manuel Blengio

Weird /best stat…

17: The number of tries England scored the last time these two teams played, with the most being five from Josh Lewsey. For a full back, that’s pretty impressive.

Remember when…

Uruguay scored against England? 12 years ago was the last time Uruguay scored in a World Cup, until they broke their duck against Fiji with two. However, we like watching the underdogs score against the big boys. Remember Japan against South Africa? Romania v New Zealand? It’s just worth mentioning the 17 tries scored by the English.

Player to watch…

Henry Slade: Despite shining in the warm up match against France, he hasn’t had a chance to show off his immense skillset. Now he finds himself in the strange position of having not one, but two fly halves in the 10 and 12 shirts. He may well find himself playing at 10 part way through the match when Joseph comes on, but he is a wonderful player for his club, Exeter. Look out for his hefty left foot.

Past meeting…

England 111 (Moody, Lewsey (5), Balshaw (2), Catt (2), Gomarsall (2), Luger, Abbott, Robinson (2), Greenwood) – Uruguay 13 (Lemoine)

Form guide…

England: WLWWLL

Uruguay: WLLLLL
