England and Australia take to the field on Saturday in their final autumn international. But if Eddie Jones or Michael Cheika could pick from both squads available at Twickenham, who would make the XV?
This XV is based on the players available on Saturday, so certain picks such as Maro Itoje, Billy Vunipola and Will Genia are not considered.
The breakdown in the forwards is England 5-3 Australia, but behind the scrum Australia take it 4-3.
1. Mako Vunipola
On current form, the England loosehead has overtaken Wallaby Scott Sio as the best No. 1 in the loose. An improving set piece means the Saracens man gets the nod.
2. Dylan Hartley
Hartley’s superior scrummaging and lineout holds off Stephen Moore. Into the twilight of their careers, neither hooker makes much of an impact in the loose.
3. Dan Cole
Probably the hardest decision in the XV given Sekope Kefu’s great ball-playing skills. To justify his selection, Cole needs be more consistent at the breakdown. He wins plenty of turnovers for a prop, but too often also infringes. The best operators keep the referee on side.

4. Rory Arnold
The giant gets in ahead of a Courtney Lawes still struggling to impose himself.
5. George Kruis
England’s lineout manager will look to recreate his Six Nations form against Adam Coleman.
6. Chris Robshaw
The ex-captain is close to the first name on Eddie Jones’ team sheet.
7. Michael Hooper
Because he’s been the best openside in the world for at least two years.
8. David Pocock
Not yet at the lofty heights of the World Cup, but with Billy Vunipola injured, Pocock is a shoo-in at No. 8.
9. Ben Youngs
Will Genia would be in, but Stade Francais aren’t releasing him. Youngs may be inconsistent, but he offers a lot more than Nick Phipps.
10. Bernard Foley
It’s close, but Foley offers more of a running threat than George Ford.
11. Jonny May
A marginal call, but the Gloucester wing is more lethal than Henry Speight.
12. Owen Farrell
Has the experience and goal-kicking to beat Reece Hodge to the jersey.
13. Tevita Kurindrani
Tough on Jonathan Joseph, but a powerhouse centre compliments this backline.
14. Dane Haylett-Petty
Superb against Ireland, Haylett-Petty had a fine Super Rugby season. No doubt that he supplants Marland Yarde.
15. Israel Folau
Imperious in the air and joining the line. Streets ahead of Mike Brown.
