England v Australia

England v Australia



The other touring sides have packed up and gone home, but Australia are sticking around the grim north for one last match before returning to sunny Christmas climes.

Facing them are the English, the side who embarrassed them at home in June. Australia will be seeking reprisals, and they have the players to do it. Adam Coleman and Rory Arnold are Australia’s tallest ever combination at second row, at 6ft 8in and 6ft 10in respectively. Bernard Foley at fly half gives the giants the guile they need.

We can talk up the Aussies, but arguably the best of that nation is in England’s ranks. Coach Eddie Jones still appears to have the magic touch.
