Saints duo start against Wallabies

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Dylan Hartley and Courtney Lawes both start for England again as their Autumn kicks up a notch against Australia this Saturday afternoon.

The pair were involved at Twickenham last weekend as Argentina were seen off 21-8 and Hartley will once again lead the side out as captain.

“In any sport England versus Australia is a great contest and in Test match rugby union there is nothing bigger,” head coach Eddie Jones told EnglandRugby.com.

"We’ve got three or four areas we really think we can target Australia in,” he said. “We’ve practised those pretty hard this week, like any team there are weaknesses, no team is secure so we’ve worked hard to exploit those areas, now we have to be good enough to do it and I’m confident we are.”

The game kicks off at 3pm and is being shown live on Sky Sports.
