ENGLAND v AUSTRALIA FREE BETTING PREVIEW England have lost to New Zealand and South Africa in November and desperate need a victory here. Last week they beat Samoa 28-9 and that broke a 5 match losing streak. They have won just four of their last ten outings, but playing four games against New Zealand will dent any team’s record.
There will be changes for England. They will be without Billy Vunipola, but Billy Twelvetrees, Stephen Myler and Thomas Waldrom all return. Billy Twelvetrees has replaced Owen Farrell in another change to the centre pairing, while George Ford - fresh from an impressive performance on his first start for England last weekend - begins at fly half.
Australia have been in poor form recently, losing their last two matches against France and against Ireland last weekend. Those defeats have left them down in a record low fifth place on the world rankings.
The Wallabies will have to do the job without Tevita Kuridrani after the Fijian born outside centre picked up an ankle injury during the defeat against Ireland. Michael Cheika has made just three changes. Utility back Adam Ashley-Cooper shifts in from the wing to centre to replace the injured Tevita Kuridrani, with Rob Horne replacing Ashley-Cooper out wide. Just one change up front sees the return of blindside bruiser Sean McMahon at the expense of Luke Jones.
England have won three of the last four internationals between two nations. The last meeting between them was in November of last year, when England posted a 20-13 victory.
