England team to play Wallabies, rugby Test news vs Australia


Manu Tuilagi has been named on the bench for England’s match against Australia while Jamie George is preferred to Dylan Hartley at hooker.

Tuilagi, who last played for England during the 2016 Six Nations, missed England’s first three autumn Tests due to a groin injury but he has been passed fit to for Sunday’s (2am AEDT) Twickenham Test with the Wallabies.

England co-captain Hartley is also among the replacements as head coach Eddie Jones sticks with George at hooker for the second successive game.

Jones has made nine changes to the team that came from behind to beat Japan, with Ben Youngs and Owen Farrell restored in the halves.
