Australia vs England Reddit

Australia vs England Reddit : England and Australia add another chapter to one of rugby’s greatest rivalries as the two sides meet in Oita for the quarter-final of the Rugby World Cup.

England’s final group game against France was cancelled due to the threat of Typhoon Hagibis, meaning Eddie Jones‘ side will not have played competitively for two weeks come kick-off at Oita Stadium. His side qualified comfortably for the quarter-finals, after thrashing Tonga and the USA, only conceding a collective 10 points.

Australia were rocked by Fiji in their opening group game, recovering from a sluggish start to launch a second-half fightback and secure a nail-biting victory. A thrilling 29-25 defeat by Wales followed, before Michael Cheika‘s side made amends with two lopsided victories against Uruguay and Georgia.

Teenager Jordan Petaia, who has won just two Test caps, comes in at centre for Australia, while Henry Slade has replaced George Ford in England’s starting XV.
What time is kick-off?
England vs Australia kicks off at 8.15am (BST) on Saturday 19th October.

How can I watch it?
The game will be broadcast live on ITV1.

The match will also be available to live stream via the ITV Hub on smartphones, laptops and tablets.

Teams
England: Daly; Watson, Slade, Tuilagi, May; Farrell (c), Youngs; M Vunipola, George, Sinckler; Itoje, Lawes; Curry, Underhill, B Vunipola.

Australia: Beale; Hodge, Petaia, Kerevi, Koroibete; Lealiifano, Genia; Alaalatoa, Latu, Sio; Arnold, Rodda; Naisarani, Hooper (c), Pocock.

Odds
England to win: 4/11

Australia to win: 3/1

Draw: 28/1

Frenchman Jerome Garces, who will referee the match on Saturday, was criticised for being too lenient at the breakdown by some South African pundits in the wake of the Springboks’ defeat by New Zealand on the tournament’s opening weekend.

Hooper, whose side struggled with discipline early in the tournament, is confident the Wallabies can now work with whatever interpretation the Frenchman brings to the contest.

“I have observed the ruck being refereed a multitude of ways, not any one way in particular. So, it’s made it quite tricky there,” he said.

“How we start the start the game and definitely adapt to what is going on out there is pretty crucial for us.”

Australia vs England Live : Allan Ala’alatoa, Michael Hooper, Will Genia, Christian Lealiifano also return to the starting line-up after Australia beat Georgia 27-8 in their final pool game.

Petaia has played just two Tests, both on the wing, but Wallabies selectors have backed him to make an impact at outside centre, where he has played for Super Rugby side Queensland Reds.

Meanwhile, England coach Eddie Jones insisted fly-half George Ford has a “significant role to play” on Thursday after he dropped him to the bench for Saturday’s World Cup quarter-final against Australia.

Ford has been one of England’s leading players in Japan but Jones moved captain Owen Farrell from inside centre to fly-half, with Henry Slade given his first start of the tournament alongside Manu Tuilagi in midfield.

Jones, however, insisted Ford would still play a major part in Saturday’s crunch clash between the old rivals in Oita.

“George is in the 23, we have a starting team and a finishing team,” he told reporters at England’s hotel in Beppu on Thursday.

“I spoke to him this morning and he’s obviously disappointed, but everyone has a role in the team.

England XV: Elliot Daly; Anthony Watson, Henry Slade, Manu Tuilagi, Jonny May; Owen Farrell (capt), Ben Youngs; Billy Vunipola, Sam Underhill, Tom Curry; Courtney Lawes, Maro Itoje; Kyle Sinckler, Jamie George, Mako Vunipola

Replacements: Luke Cowan-Dickie, Joe Marler, Dan Cole, George Kruis, Lewis Ludlam, Willi Heinz, George Ford, Jonathan Joseph

Australia XV (15-1): Kurtley Beale; Reece Hodge, Jordan Petaia, Samu Kerevi, Marika Koroibete; Christian Lealiifano, Will Genia; Isi Naisarani, Michael Hooper (capt), David Pocock; Rory Arnold, Izack Rodda; Allan Alaalatoa, Tolu Latu, Scott Sio

Australia vs England

Australia vs England : The teamsheets had barely hit the press before the Australia and England started to play mind games ahead of their 2019 Rugby quaterfinal on Saturday. But if you’re imaging some unsavoury sledging between the sides – you’re wrong.

Australian playmaker Matt To’omua has sledged England’s players for their poor snooker skills and a reluctance to buy a round of drinks.

To’omua spent three years with the Leicester Tigers between 2016–2019 and on Thursday gleefully revealed a few trade secrets about several of the players the Wallabies will lock horns with in Oita on Saturday.

“I’ve been very fortunate to play with a lot of them there,” said the veteran fly-half

“I know all of their weaknesses luckily — I can list them now for you if you want,” added To’omua with a smile, before going on to savage former Tigers team mates Manu Tuilagi, George Ford, Ben Youngs, Jonny May and Dan Cole.

“Manu is a terrible snooker player, George Ford never pays for a beer, Ben Youngs isn’t even the best rugby player in his family.

“The chicken, Jonny May — very weird … and Dan Cole doesn’t have a personality, so I’ve just been telling everyone about that.”

Old foes across all sports, the two sides are the first to play their quarterfinal on the weekend.

oach Michael Cheika on Thursday named teen sensation Jordan Petaia in his starting side to face England in this weekend’s Rugby World Cup quarter-final in a bold gamble.

Cheika’s surprise decision to field the explosive 19-year-old at centre is one of five changes for Saturday’s clash in Oita with wing Reece Hodge back from a three-game ban and centre James O’Connor dropping to the bench.

Allan Ala’alatoa, Michael Hooper, Will Genia, Christian Lealiifano also return to the starting line-up after Australia beat Georgia 27-8 in their final pool game.

Petaia has played just two Tests, both on the wing, but Wallabies selectors have backed him to make an impact at outside centre, where he has played for Super Rugby side Queensland Reds.

Meanwhile, England coach Eddie Jones insisted fly-half George Ford has a “significant role to play” on Thursday after he dropped him to the bench for Saturday’s World Cup quarter-final against Australia.

Wallabies vs England Reddit : The knockout stage of the Rugby World Cup gets underway on Saturday when England takes on Australia in Oita.

There could hardly be a more fitting game to kick off proceedings in the quarterfinals and it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to suggest the rivalry between the two has defined the tournament’s history.

Rugby World Cup 2019: All the Favorites Ranked and Format ExplainedREAD MORE
From Australia winning its first World Cup in England by defeating the hosts in the final in 1991 to England returning the favor 12 years later in Sydney courtesy of Jonny Wilkinson’s famous drop goal, England and Australia have delivered some the most iconic moments in World Cup history.

Those memories aren’t limited to the final act either. Think of England’s scrum dismantling Australia in the quarterfinals in 2007 or the Wallabies knocking England out of its own World Cup in at the group stages four years ago.

That result prompted England to radically change its course, appointing Eddie Jones—the man who led Australia to the 2003 final against England—with the firm objective of returning to the top of the world this year.

The Wallabies, meanwhile, went on to reach the final in 2015, but haven’t beaten the Old Enemy ever since.

In Jones’ first season as England coach he led his team to a 3-0 series win in Australia and has defeated his home country in each of the last three campaigns.

Off the field, the 59-year-old has also held the upper hand, coming out on top of virtually every bout of verbal sparring with his Australian counterpart, Michael Cheika.
Jones added a hefty dose of fuel to the fire when he suggested that England would benefit from not having to play France in their final group game—the match was canceled because of Typhoon Hagibis—and would be fresher than Australia.

Cheika returned the verbal volley with interests.

“I suppose they’d better win,” he said in his press conference.

“They’ve had the best preparation, according to the coach, so they’d better go out there and win. We’ll see how we go.”
Verbal jousting aside, neither side has been completely convincing so far, though England has been more impressive than Australia.

The 2003 winners topped Pool C with three wins in three games, before the game against France was canceled.

Australia, meanwhile, were sloppy in wins against Fiji and Georgia and narrowly lost to Wales, who frustrated the Wallabies by dominating them at the breakdown.

That area of the game will be crucial on Saturday, when Cheika will hope Michael Hooper and David Pocock can inflict as much damage on England as they did four years ago.

Wallabies vs England Live : England will be looking to right the wrongs of four years ago when they meet Australia for a place in the Rugby World Cup semi-final on Saturday.At the last World Cup, in 2015, England lost a must-win pool stage game against the Aussies that saw them dumped out on home soil.

Under Eddie Jones, however, they have won all six of their meetings against the Wallabies, and will be favourites to make it seven out of seven in Oita.England topped Pool C by winning all three of their completed games with bonus points, and then had what would have been the group decider with France called off because of Typhoon Hagibis.

Australia, meanwhile, had to settle for second place in Pool D after losing a crunch game of their own, against Wales.

Eddie Jones has sprung a big selection shock by switching Owen Farrell from inside centre to fly-half and dropping George Ford to the bench, with Manu Tuilagi stepping inside to 12 and Henry Slade coming into midfield.

It was England’s preferred 10-12-13 trio during the Six Nations and is no doubt designed at least in part to counteract the threat of imposing Wallabies centre Samu Kerevi.

No8 Billy Vunipola is fit to start after overcoming an ankle knock suffered against Argentina, while brother Mako replaces Joe Marler at loosehead.

Courtney Lawes is preferred to George Kruis in the second row.

England XV: Daly; Watson, Slade, Tuilagi, May; Farrell, Youngs; M Vunipola, George, Sinckler; Itoje, Lawes; Curry, Underhill, B Vunipola

Australia coach Michael Cheika has opted to move 19-year-old Jordan Petaia from the wing to outside centre, where he will partner Kerevi.

Reece Hodge returns from his three-match suspension and Kurtley Beale is retained at 15 after passing the necessary return to play protocols following a head knock sustained against Georgia.

Captain Michael Hooper forms his usual scavenging partnership with David Pocock and Allan Alaalatoa gets the nod over Sekope Kepu at tighthead.

Will Genia and Christian Lealiifano are paired together at half-back, while there is no place in the matchday squad for Dane Haylett-Petty.

England vs Wallabies Reddit

England vs Wallabies Reddit : The Rugby World Cup quarterfinals have arrived with the Wallabies to take on old enemy England in a mouth-watering clash at Otia Stadium. The Wallabies have signalled their intentions to attack by picking boom rookie Jordan Petaia for his first Test at outside centre.

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.

But don’t sweat. With the option of a VPN, you can tune into those fixtures no matter where you are in the world without resorting to some dodgy feed on Reddit.

And best of all, it’s really easy to do (or read on for details on how to stream coverage from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada and the USA).

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? You can watch all the action from pretty much anywhere on Earth by following our Rugby World Cup England vs Australia live stream guide below.

England vs Wallabies Live

England vs Wallabies Live : Now that game falls in the quarter-finals of a World Cup, with his reputation as England coach likely to be defined by what happens in the Oita Stadium on Saturday and what may follow, all that has been ramped up further still.

There is the coaching rivalry: Jones, the former Randwick hooker, up against Michael Cheika, former Randwick number eight. There is what a win would mean: a World Cup semi-final, maybe more. There is what defeat might bring: the end of a regime, a censorious reappraisal of all it was built on.

Jones’ starting XV is everything he has always wanted England to be: big, strong, packed with powerful ball-carriers, based around a rock-solid set-piece.

Ford, arguably England’s best player in their three group-stage wins, is gone, sent to the bench as Owen Farrell is shifted from inside centre to 10. Everywhere you look is muscle, energy and snarl.

For the Wallabies, they will be clinging on to that possibility and hoping the first four games aren’t the script of how their quarter-final performance against England will run.

Underwhelming performances against Uruguay and Georgia, and slow starts against Fiji and Wales left the Australian outfit second in their pool, and not riding the wave of good form that Michael Cheika and his staff may have hoped for or envisaged running into this World Cup.

Too often it has been basic handling errors and sub-par work at the breakdown that has let opposition sides stay in the contest, even when on paper they were far inferior.

That leads us in to team news for this clash. For the Wallabies, the biggest call of the lot is undoubtedly the selection of young gun and two-Test wonder Jordan Petaia at outside centre.

Australia used to prefer contrasting methods. Four years ago their march to the World Cup final was based on the guile and quick-thinking of Bernard Foley and Matt Giteau. This time Cheika has followed the Jones way: a scrum and line-out that is a weapon rather than weakness, 17 stone of Samu Kerevi at centre, 6ft 3ins of Jordan Petaia next to him.

“As a player ‘Cheik’ absolutely did all his talking out on the field,” says Mortlock. “He was incredibly combative, almost a thug on the pitch.

“One of my first games was against Randwick, him and his brothers. And you didn’t really want to go near the Cheika brothers.

England vs Wallabies Live

England vs Wallabies Live : After a hit-and-miss group stage for the Wallabies, and a momentum building prelude to the knockout stages for the English, it is do-or-die as the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals get underway with a bumper clash between two of the oldest enemies in global sport.
Tournament play is misleading in a sense. A team that has played flawless rugby union in the group stages can be sent home courtesy of one poor 80-minute performance.

Alternatively, a side that has spluttered and puffed its way into knockout contention can finally see things click when it matters most, progressing one step closer to a piece of silverware.

Mario Itoje returns to the second row, and he has been a monster at this Rugby World Cup, despite only taking part in two matches to date.

Henry Slade comes in at outside centre, while Billy Vunipola has recovered from injury to take his spot at number eight.

England have a host of big, abrasive ball-carriers in Courtney Lawes, Vunipola, Itoje and Sam Underhill. If they keep the ball in tight, and play through their superior pack, the Australian’s will find it very difficult to win this match-up.
