England kick-off this 2019 Rugby World Cups knockout stages as they confront old rivals Australia in the Oita Stadium.
Eddie Jones appeared a serious surprise when placing his side on Thursday dropping George Ford and moving priest Owen Farrell straight into the 10 jersey.
Courtney Lawes coming to the second row and Mako Vunipola producing his first start as the Six Nations at front are seen by other adjustments. Certainly this selection is based around electricity and blunting that the strong ball carriers that were Australians.
Michael Cheika has likewise made a few eyebrow raising collections together using 19-year-old Jordan Petaia at outside centre, while Christian Lealiifano and Will Genia unite from the half-backs in their fourth different blend of this contest.
Australia have played during this World Cup in fits and starts, making a solid second half to defeat Fiji, until their strong fightback fell short, however they were woeful for 40 minutes from Wales.

In these six meetings England possess an average winning margin of 15 points, and have scored 30 or more points in each one of those clashes (although the Aussies have scored 30 or more just once).
But I do not anticipate the guys in white to conduct off with this fixture since they have done in recent decades, but I really do think they will have a lot of for the Wallabies. Despite the changes their side feels settled and theyve got more clarity in the way they want to play.
But we all know that with backs to the walls Michael Hooper and his side will probably come from breathing fire, however that I think Farrell and also co. will come out on top in a tight encounter — England by 1-10 points would be my bet.
My selection is Elliot Daly tryscorer, the England fullback has truly grown into his role in the previous few months and has two attempts against Australia in his profession. He will look to join the lineup and may expose the space between his wingers and the inexperienced Petaia – .
