Well this is it! The re-match of England v Australia, one year on from when England were infamously dumped out of the RWC2015.

It is unbelievable what has happened since then, nobody could have written or predicted the script.
•The appointment of the Australian Coach Eddie Jones, who the class of 2003 came up against to beat Australia and win the RWC2003.
•Then England went onto produce a Grand Slam in the 2016 Six Nations.
•Then they went down under on Summer Tour to Australia and WON all three Tests.
The're are on a roll of 13 unbeaten matches..........so this match could be the one that bursts the bubble.
However, even if the bubble does burst, no team will be able to take away that 'winning' feeling from the squad we have now. It has been abrilliant year.
All I can say is 'Thank You ' Eddie Jones, Steve Borthwick, Paul Gustard and all those involved with this miracle of a journey.
So bring it on.................. Eddie has been winding up the Australians as only he can, he wants a big physical test. Let's hope the match lives up to expectations.
