Poms wary of Australia


England coach is confident his team will never be complacent in the face of rivalry.

Eddie Jones’ England will have to guard against complacency ahead of their final Test of the year against his country of birth — Australia.

The English are still unbeaten under Jones and beat the Wallabies in their own backyard earlier this year.

But fullback Mike Brown says: “Every English team loves playing the Aussies.

“There is always that rivalry in any sport. They always seem to be great games.

“The only danger for us is allowing complacency to set in – I don’t believe this team would ever let that happen.”

Meanwhile, winger Semesa Rokoduguni was handed a lifeline after being retained in an extended squad to compete with Marland Yarde for the match.

After being dropped following his Man of the Match display against Fiji, the winger has been offered a second chance by Eddie Jones – although Yarde is still favourite to start on the wing.
