England and New Zealand will do battle in the final of the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup to determine who will be crowned world champions in Ireland.Here are the predictions for the final games of the tournament, which concludes on Saturday.England v New Zealand under the lights at Kingspan Stadium in Belfast on a Saturday night – what a Women’s World Cup final it is going to be.

It’s the defending champions against the four-time champions. It’s England’s fifth straight World Cup final and their fourth against the Black Ferns. England lost the previous three, finishing runners-up in 2002, 2006 and 2010, and the rivalry between the two is huge.

England not only beat the Black Ferns on New Zealand soil for the first time since 2001 in June but they also usurped them as the world’s No 1 team in the rankings. Yet this week New Zealand were back on top courtesy of their victory over higher-ranked Canada in the pool stages. We don’t have to wait long to find out who is the world’s best team, however; that will be decided on Saturday night – and it should be a cracker of a World Cup final.

Moore has named an unchanged starting XV for the final and there is only one tweak on the bench, Kristina Sue coming in for Linda Itunu as they revert to a 5-3 split between forwards and backs replacements.England head coach Simon Middleton has made one change, enforced by the fact Danielle Waterman failed an HIA during the semi-final against France. Emily Scarratt moves to full-back with Megan Jones coming in at 13, and Amy Wilson Hardy earns a place on the bench.
