Can Eddie Jones’s side close out the series in Sydney?

Australia v England live stream: How to watch the 2022 Test series

“You want rivalry don’t you? You want spikiness to games. The first 15-20 minutes on Saturday – let’s bring it on because that’s what it’s all about. We’ve got two teams who are playing for the Test series so we are both going to be going at it.”

Those are the words of England forwards coach Richard Cockerill ahead of Saturday’s deciding third Test against Australia in Sydney.

The Wallabies took a 1-0 lead in the series after beating England for the first time since 2015, but the tourists drew level with a 25-17 victory in Test two in Brisbane. Now it all comes down to 80 minutes at the Sydney Cricket Ground – no wonder the match has sold out!

Both sides have been forced to make injury-enforced changes this week. Lewis Ludlam and Ollie Chessum replace Sam Underhill and Maro Itoje respectively in the England line-up, with Danny Care also preferred at scrum-half.

For the Wallabies, full-back Reece Hodge and back-rower Harry Wilson are picked for the first time during this series while James Slipper comes in at loosehead and Nick Frost starts at lock.

These are the line-ups for the third Test in Sydney and below we explain how you can watch the match.

Australia: Reece Hodge; Tom Wright, Hunter Paisami, Samu Kerevi, Marika Koroibete; Noah Lolesio, Nic White; James Slipper, David Porecki, Taniela Tupou, Nick Frost, Matt Philip, Harry Wilson, Michael Hooper (captain), Rob Valetini.

Replacements: Folau Fainga’a, Angus Bell, Allan Alaalatoa, Rob Leota, Pete Samu, Tate McDermott, Len Ikitau, Suliasi Vunivalu.
