Woodward backs Australia to win Rugby World Cup

The coach that led England to victory in the 2003 Rugby World Cup has backed Australia to be this year's champions.

Sir Clive Woodward told ITV News that this year's tournament has been "magic" for the Australian side, and personally thinks that they will beat New Zealand in tomorrow's final at Twickenham.

Sir Woodward said the Wallabies' "amazing" players David Pocock and Michael Hooper could be the edge Australia needs to take home the title.

The former England coach also told ITV News that England's disappointing result in this year's tournament was down to the type of players selected.

The final is scheduled to kick-off at 4.00pm on Saturday at Twickenham.
