Lewis Moody expects England's match against Scotland to be a "tough encounter".

Lewis Moody is expecting a "tough encounter" when England take on Scotland next weekend.

Victory will not only see England maintain their 100% winning record at the World Cup, but will ensure that they progress to the quarter-finals as Pool B leaders.

The Scots are unlikely to qualify after today's loss against Argentina, but the England captain still expects a competitive match.

"We know that the challenge ahead of us now is next week’s game against Scotland," Moody told talkSPORT.

"That’s going to be a totally different ball game, it’s going to be incredibly tough.

"They’re coached by Andy Robinson, a chap that we all respect so it will be a tough encounter."

England's latest victory was a 67-3 success over Romania.
