Rugby Autumn Tests: England and Australia Line-ups; previous meeting

As the rugby teams of England and Australia brace for their clash at Twickenham on Saturday, the following are the previous results and teams ahead of the autumn Test series.

The game is the opening fixture in the Lions’ preparations for the future and they hope to get off to a winning start, despite going into the game with several players.

“We need to get our own detail right and hit the ground running,” said assistant coach Andy Farrell.

“Injuries are inevitable. You’ve got to have a strong squad and a strong culture to cope with that, and we’re certainly confident with what we’ve got.”
