England ready for Australia despite low-key start, says Ben Youngs

England ready for Australia despite low-key start, says Ben Youngs”

England are likely to have No 8 Billy Vunipola back to full fitness for their World Cup quarter-final against Australia in Oita on Saturday.

Jones names his team to face the Wallabies on Thursday and Vunipola, the only player to have started all 12 of England's Tests this year, will be an automatic selection if fit.

Nonetheless when England staged a fleshy tempo practising match right thru the time slot the effect they were in outcome of play France, each and each Billy Vunipola and Nowell did no longer capture part. He's very likely [to play].

"That game in 2015 was one where they came up with a play we had never seen before - Bernard Foley comes around and plays it back inside to Kurtley Beale", Youngs said. He loves the ball in his hand, is very good at regaining and retaining momentum.

While the update over Vunipola has been positive, it appears increasingly unlikely that wing Jack Nowell will play any part in the quarter-final, with Jonathan Joseph in line to take his place on the bench.

They have gone into decline after reaching the last World Cup final, but Mitchell insists they remain the game's great innovators in attack.

But turning to the Australia match, he said: "We will make sure we are right and ready to go and have things we haven't had to use yet".

"They will be clever on the weekend". Against the United States of America and Tonga, we kept it fairly low key in terms of what we wanted to show.

"I know there's other people who won't give us much of a chance, but I believe that when you believe in yourself you are much closer to being able to create history".

He added: "At the end of the day, having witnessed a number of teams play against Australia and also played against them myself as a youngster, they have always been highly intellectual in the way that they play the game and have always been clever and it something that I respect".
