Australia v England live stream: How to watch the 2022 Test series
Australia beat England for the first time since 2015 last weekend in Perth and this Saturday they will be hoping to wrap up the Test series with another victory in Brisbane.
Taniela Tupou returns at tighthead for the Wallabies and has been talking in the build-up of how he and Ellis Genge will want to “smash” each other.
Matt Philip comes into the second row for the banned Darcy Swain and there are injury-enforced changes in the back-line. Jordan Petaia starts a Test at full-back for the first time, while Tom Wright and Hunter Paisami come in at wing and outside-centre respectively.
Eddie Jones has picked two debutants in his England back-line – wing Tommy Freeman and centre Guy Porter, who lived in Australia for 15 years before joining Leicester Tigers in 2020.
Jack van Poortlviet, who won his first cap off the bench in the Perth defeat, starts at scrum-half and Sam Underhill comes into the back row for Tom Curry, who has been ruled out of the series with concussion.
Interestingly, Jones has named six forwards on the bench, perhaps looking for those replacements to make an impact at the breakdown after England struggled in that area last week.
These are the line-ups for the second Test in Brisbane and below we explain how you can watch the match.
Australia: Jordan Petaia; Tom Wright, Hunter Paisami, Samu Kerevi, Marika Koroibete; Noah Lolesio, Nic White; Angus Bell, David Porecki, Taniela Tupou, Matt Philip, Cadeyrn Neville, Rob Leota, Michael Hooper (captain), Rob Valetini.
Replacements: Folau Fainga’a, Scott Sio, James Slipper, Nick Frost, Pete Samu, Jake Gordon, James O’Connor, Izaia Perese.
England: Freddie Steward; Jack Nowell, Guy Porter, Owen Farrell, Tommy Freeman; Marcus Smith, Jack van Poortlviet; Ellis Genge, Jamie George, Will Stuart, Maro Itoje, Jonny Hill, Courtney Lawes (captain), Sam Underhill, Billy Vunipola.
Replacements: Luke Cowan-Dickie, Mako Vunipola, Joe Heyes, Ollie Chessum, Lewis Ludlam, Jack Willis, Danny Care, Henry Arundell.
