Here’s the 23 man squad including starting XV that England should select for their first encounter with the Wallabies in June.
Has lost some form over the last 18 months but still remains consistent on the international stage.
Absolutely devastating out wide and has the added bonus of being able to cover full back.
It would be nice to see Daly given game time, but for now Joseph should remain the starter.
Given the lack of alternatives at 12 right now, Farrell should pick up where he left off after the Six Nations.
Was outstanding once again for Exeter in the Premiership final and continues to be solid across the board for England.
Looked shaky from the tee against Wales but still remains an attacking threat so should retain his place for now.
Ben Youngs looked poor at best against Wales, whereas Care’s introduction led to a notable upturn in pace.
England’s star man from the Six Nations has transferred his international form onto the club stage in the second half of the season.
Was excellent against Wales and helps add a little more dynamise to the back row which perhaps otherwise lacks pace.
Very similar in terms of ability to James Haskell but perhaps offers a little more given his captaincy experience.
Formed a formidable partnership with Itoje in the second row in the latter half of this year’s Six Nations.
Has the potential to be one of England’s World Class players and could well be a future captain of the side.
Given the lack of senior alternatives in the tour squad, England should stick with Cole throughout the series.
Has shown he is more than capable of leading the side and will be a key figure in Australia.
With Joe Marler missing, Vunipola should start the first test but will face stiff competition for the jersey.
Looks to be the long-term future for England in the number two shirt so should be given ample game time against the Wallabies.
Arguably the form loosehead in the Premiership this season, Mullan is a more than capable replacement for Marler.
Showed during the Six Nations that despite his young age he can hold his own on the international stage.
Was absolutely sublime against Wales and will be pushing hard for a spot in the starting XV in the second two tests.
Can cover all three back row positions and looked at home against Wales during his international debut.
Given he is the only other scrum half on tour England have no choice but to select Youngs.
Had a poor game in the Premiership final but looked more comfortable at 12 so could push for a start in the second test.
Can cover most positions in the backline and has more than earned some serious game time during the tour.
