England are back in action today as they face off against South Africa in the first of this year’s Autumn Internationals.
It’s a big game for the home side who have had a torrid run of results in 2018.
England do face South Africa having won their last fixture 25-10 in the summer tour.
This will surely give Eddie Jones’ team some inspiration ahead of what is sure to be a tough encounter at Twickenham.
“We’ve become very well organised in our set-piece and have done a lot of good work in Portugal over the last week,” Jones said.
“We have put in a new defence system and our attack looks more organised than it was on the South Africa tour.
“Against South Africa you have got the physical battle up front and then you have to be tactically smart in how you attack against them.
“We need to find ways to gain momentum, then once we find momentum, convert that to points. We are really excited to be back at Twickenham Stadium. It’s been a long time and we can’t wait to play in front of 82,000 fans.”
Owen Farrell has been named at fly-half for England’s autumn series opener against South Africa at Twickenham on Saturday.
The Saracens playmaker starts in the position for only the third time in the Eddie Jones era, forcing George Ford to settle for a place among the replacements.
