The Wallabies are in town for a huge clash in west London
England welcome Australia to Twickenham for what promises to be a mouth-watering match at the home of rugby union.
Martin Johnson’s team were valiant in defeat to New Zealand last weekend and showed that they can compete with the best sides in the world. England will actually be looking for a second straight win over their opponents having beaten the Wallabies in their last encounter in Sydney.
The rivalry between the two nations needs no further explanation but this match has added significance as it kicks off a winter of battle with The Ashes due to be fought later this month.
While England’s confidence has been raised from their last two outings, they must beware Austrakia who inflicted the All Blacks first defeat this year in Hong Kong two weeks ago and followed it up with a comfortable win over Wales. Fly half Quade Cooper is the man England must stop if they are to record a famous win.
Remarkably, tickets are still available for this mammoth encounter though the stadium is expected to be packed to the rafters buy kickoff on Saturday
