What is the latest squad news?
England’s injury concerns focus on Billy and Mako Vunipola, Jack Nowell and Henry Slade. All four are expected to be available for selection on Saturday.
However when England staged a full pace training match during the time slot where they were due to play France, both Billy Vunipola and Nowell did not participate.
England are expected to select George Ford and Owen Farrell to start alongside each other in the midfield.
England XV: Daly; Watson, Slade, Tuilagi, May; Farrell (capt), Youngs; M Vunipola, George, Sinckler; Itoje, Lawes; Curry, Underhill, B Vunipola.
Replacements: Cowan-Dickie, Marler, Cole, Kruis, Ludlam, Heinz, Ford, Joseph.
Reece Hodge is available to play for Australia after receiving a three match ban for a high tackle during their first match of the tournament against Fiji. His selection is far from guaranteed with competition from Jordan Petaia and Dane Haylett-Petty to start in the back three alongside Kurtley Beale and Marika Koroibete.
However there are injury concerns over Beale who sustained a nasty head injury against Georgia. The fullback’s availability is in doubt.
The biggest selection dilemma facing Michael Cheika is at fly-half. Christian Lealiifano, Bernard Foley and Matt To’omua have all started at 10 in the tournament so far. The choice is expected to be between Lealiifano and To’omua but there more experienced Foley could come into the reckoning.
Australia XV: Beale; Hodge, Petaia, Kerevi, Koroibete; Lealiifano, Genia; Alaalatoa, Latu, Sio; Arnold, Rodda; Naisarani, Hooper (c), Pocock.
Replacements: Uelese, Slipper, Tupou, Coleman, Salakaia-Loto, White, To’omua, O’Connor.
What are the betting odds?
- England to win: 1/3
- Australia to win: 13/5
- Draw: 25/1
England vs Australia prediction
England have had the edge on Australia in recent times but have not really been tested at this tournament. Australia have played well in patches but look inconsistent. England’s forwards will have just too much in Oita.
