England face the Wallabies today in the second game of their tour of Australia.

The match is on Sky in the UK and free on Channel Nine in Australia. Kick-off is at 10.55am BST this morning with the weather sunny and fairly warm in Brisbane for the game.

Joe Cokanasiga, Joe Marchant and Danny Care are the three players that drop out, and with Tom Curry ruled out through concussion, Sam Underhill gets the nod at openside.

Australia have made six changes to their XV, mainly due to injuries. Tom Banks, Andrew Kellaway, Len Ikitau, Quade Cooper and Allan Alaalatoa are all absent, replaced by Jordan Petaia, Tom Wright, Hunter Paisami, Noah Lolesio and Taniela Tupou. Matt Philip comes in for the suspended Darcy Swain.
