Eddie Jones’ side ran in eleven tries in a 69-3 win over Tonga last week and will look to maintain the momentum against the Wallabies.

And the Red Rose will have captain Owen Farrell back after the Covid test that ruled him out of the Tonga match turned out to be a false positive.

But he will be moved to inside-centre to accommodate Marcus Smith at fly-half, who impressed when he came on against the Tongans.

Australia meanwhile come into this one a wounded animal after a shock 15-13 defeat to Scotland at Murrayfield last week.

England’s Australian head coach Eddie Jones said of the match against the Wallabies: “The one thing I know is that we don’t get a head start from being ahead 7-0 against them.

“They all start 0-0, they are a very well coached team by Dave Rennie, a few of their senior players like [Michael] Hooper are playing exceptionally well.

[The scrum-half] Nic White is playing exceptionally well and they have got a lot of talented youngsters coming through.

“The breakdown against Australia is going to be brutal.

“Rennie’s teams are always renowned for being exceptional at the breakdown.

“So we are lucky we have got the best referee in the world in Jaco Peyper who is particularly very good in that breakdown area, so we are going to get a great contest.”
