With Owen Farrell losing the captaincy and Eddie Jones closer to losing his job than ever, England's soap opera era is showing no signs of deescalating. They've won their last eight against the Wallabies, but there's no doubt that the old enemies are trending in completely different directions, and Dave Rennie's men now have a glorious opportunity to stop the rot. Read on as our guide explains how to get an Australia vs England live stream and watch the Summer International rugby match online and on TV from anywhere today.

There's a great deal of pent-up frustration in the England camp after their 52-21 humiliation at the hands of the 14-man Barbarians at Twickenham two weeks ago. And, given their poor disciplinary record under the captaincy of Farrell, it's the calmer presence of Courtney Lawes who leads the team in a charged atmosphere in Perth. 

Farrell, said to be seething at his head coach's decision, starts alongside Marcus Smith, while Billy Vunipola and Danny Care are back in the side for the first time since 2021 and 2018, respectively.

There's no sense of pretence or planning for the future in Rennie's selection, which is designed to smash England's grip on this rivalry right now. The stage has been given to Quade Cooper, though the support act is a pretty intriguing one too, with towering 33-year-old lock Cadeyrn Neville finally making his debut a decade on from his first Wallabies callup.
