Rugby World Cup predictions: Legends pick their 2019 winners

Sir Clive Woodward: My gut feeling is an England v New Zealand final, which is the match-up much of the rugby world would like to see. England need to be fast out of traps and top their pool, and that could result in a quarter-final against Australia and a semifinal against South Africa. If England reach the final, I’m backing them to win it. MailOnline

Michael Lynagh: It’s one of the more open World Cups we’ve had for a while but you can probably whittle it down to a shortlist of three — New Zealand, South Africa or England

Austin Healey: I think New Zealand will win the World Cup unless England can manufacture a second place in the group. If England lose to France in the final game they go into the better side of the draw become eventual winners.

Will Greenwood: Power, pace, a great goalkicker and lineout gurus. Springboks look the full package.
