England vs Australia Live : England vs Australia Live Stream, The first of the 2019 Rugby World Cup quarter-finals is a tantalising one. The old enemies from opposite sides of the world going head-to-head. A place in the Rugby World Cup semi-finals is at stake – which team will hold their nerve? Watch the action as it happens with our England vs Australia live stream guide.
A 33-13 win for the Wallabies four years ago ensured England suffered an embarrassing pool-stage exit at the World Cup on home soil and prompted the Rugby Football Union to hire Australian Eddie Jones as its new head coach.
Tasmanian Jones has had Cheika’s number ever since, with England winning each of its six meetings between 2016 and 2018. However, that record is not weighing on the mind of Cheika, who has already said he will walk away from his post if Australia does not win the World Cup.
“The fear inside us is dead,” Cheika said at a news conference. “We are not afraid to go there and get it. That means it will be a great game.”
That attitude perhaps explains Cheika’s decision to roll the dice on 19-year-old Jordan Petaia, who will become just the fourth teenager to appear in a World Cup knockout match when he starts at outside centre.
Petaia only made his Test debut in the pool stage and both his previous appearances came at wing, but he has been shifted inside with Reece Hodge returning from suspension. “I trust him infinitely,” Cheika said of Petaia.
“He’s looking good as gold. It’s going to be fast and aggressive but I just know he will rise to the challenge — I’ve seen it in him.”
Michael Hooper will captain the side in his 99th Test after he was a late withdrawal against Georgia last Friday, while Kurtley Beale has completed the World Rugby Graduated Return-To-Play protocols to be named at fullback.
Saturday’s clash with England will be the seventh meeting between the two nations at a Rugby World Cup with the ledger even at three wins apiece since Australia’s 19-6 win at the inaugural 1987 event. The two proud nations are set for their 51st clash but the Quarter Final in Oita will mark just the third time they’ve met at a neutral venue.
The Wallabies have had a poor recent record against the Englishmen however, having lost the last six meetings since Australia’s dominant 33-13 victory at Twickenham in the pool stage of Rugby World Cup 2015.
