The Ella-Mobbs Cup is there for the taking in what's absolutely certain to be a bad-tempered affair at a packed out Sydney Cricket Ground. Both sides have been battered by injury, but it's time for Australia and England to renew hostilities one final time in their Test series decider. Things are going to get extremely tasty out there, so read on as our guide explains how to get an Australia vs England live stream and watch the Summer International rugby third Test online from anywhere, including how to watch for FREE.

Australia vs England live stream

Date: Saturday, July 16

Kick-off time: 7.55pm AEST / 10.55am BST / 5.55am ET / 11.55am SAST / 9.55pm NZST

Venue: Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney

FREE live stream: 9Now (AU)

Watch anywhere: try ExpressVPN 100% risk-free

Global streams: Sky Sport (NZ) | Sky Sports (UK & IRE) | FloRugby (US) | SuperSport (SA)

The first two Tests gave us Ellis Genge on Michael Hooper, Genge on Nic White, and who could forget Darcy Swain on Jonny Hill after the England man's attempts to tear the Wallabies lock's locks out? Add to that the fact that the Aussies last played a Test at SCG in 1986, and that Sydney has been starved of international rugby for the past two years, and you'll get a flavor of just how fractious the atmosphere will be. 

Is it time for Taniela Tupou, the man they call the "Tongan Thor", to make his presence felt?

Dave Rennie's squad is down to its bare bones after Jordan Petaia, Izaia Perese, Scott Sio and Cadeyrn Neville all fell to injuries within the first hour of their 17-25 defeat last weekend, and he's brought in Harry Wilson, Nick Frost, Reece Hodge and James Slipper as their replacements. Flying wing Suliasi Vunivalu, who used to ply his trade in rugby league, could make his long-anticipated debut off the bench.

Both Maro Itoje and Sam Underhill are out with concussion, which means Ollie Chessum and Lewis Ludlam have huge boots to fill in the England setup. Eddie Jones has also switched Jack van Poortvliet out for Danny Care despite the Tigers man's brilliant performance last weekend, with Care perhaps seen as a better foil for Harlequins teammate Marcus Smith. Can England take inspiration from Ireland, who've just made history in New Zealand?

It all hinges on this, so follow our guide as we explain how to get an Australia vs England third Test live stream today wherever you are - starting with how to watch Australia vs England for FREE.
