This is a rugby rivalry forged in the fires of the 1970s and 80s when it was red in tooth and claw. Times may have changed but the rugby is just as intense.
One of the oldest and biggest rivalries in world sport, never mind rugby - any meeting with Australia is to be savoured. The Wallabies have rediscovered something of the best of themselves in the Rugby Championship and beat New Zealand last season so their collective threat, dazzling attacking brilliance and all-round mastery of managing the game will test England to the limits. Twickenham will be a sell-out - make sure you are there to experience it!
In the final match of the series, England will play South Africa on 20 November in what will be the first meeting between the sides since the Rugby World Cup 2019 final. This also sees the Springboks back at Twickenham Stadium for the first time since 2018, England edging that game 12-11.
