There aren’t many more storied opponents than those set to play out the first 2019 Rugby World Cup quarter-final today. England and Australia are the old enemies from opposite sides of the world going head-to-head. A place in the Rugby World Cup semi-finals is at stake, but which team will hold their nerve? Watch the action as it happens with our England vs Australia live stream guide.England have had an unexpected extended break thanks to Typhoon Hagibis, which begs the question – will they come into the match rested and prepared? Or will they be off the pace?
Meanwhile, their opponents Australia have been somewhat underwhelming throughout the pool stage, with head coach Michael Cheika still seemingly unsure of his best team.
With their final pool game against France called off, England’s fringe players lost an opportunity to perhaps stake a claim for a starting role. But coach Eddie Jones hasn’t been afraid to shift around his side for this showdown, springing a huge surprise by dropping in-form George Ford and restoring his captain Owen Farrell at fly-half. Henry Slade comes in at outside centre with Manu Tuilagi moving to number 12, while Mako Vunipola has been declared fit and comes in for England at loosehead prop. For their part, Australia have also made a bold selection choice, with teenager Jordan Petaia set to start at centre.With Aussie confidence somewhat low, a strong start by England would probably be the catalyst for Eddie Jones’ side to sail through to the semis, but will this be the game that sees the Wallabies find some form?
