England are back in action again this weekend as they face Japan in the Autumn Internationals.

Despite a tough year, the home side have had a better end to 2018 with a win against South Africa and narrow, one point, loss to New Zealand last weekend.

Now they face Japan in game most will be expecting them to win with relative ease.

However, England are taking no chances and they know this could be a tough encounter under the lights of South West London.

Speaking to BBC 5 Live about a recent fact-finding mission, England assistant coach Neal Hatley said: “We are expecting them to be fast and physical.

“The trip was very enlightening.

“I was impressed. The standard of the Japanese players was exceptional, and their attitude to work was first-class.”

England still have some tough games ahead with Australia arriving at Twickenham next weekend.

So, if you want to watch all the action here’s how to tune in online.
