WATCH: Wallabies New Ad Outrages English Fans

Eddie Jones and his England side are gearing up for what should be a fascinating three test series against an improving Wallabies side.

For Dave Rennie the challenges England will present should prepare his Wallabies nicely for what will be a tough Rugby Championship campaign.

The good news for the Australians is a vastly improved showing in Super Rugby this season by several teams. Leading the charge was the Brumbies who came agonisingly close to knocking over the Blues in Auckland.

As if the challenge England will present, the Wallabies have launched an advert that could well come back to haunt them.

In a hilarious move the aptly named “Tongan Thor” Taniela Tupou can be seen crashing an English tea party.

Unfortunately for the Australians it would appear that they have short term memories as the last time England toured in 2016, they pulled a similar move.

England would then go on to emphatically whitewash the series 3 – 0 and set themselves up for a journey that culminated in a World Cup final appearance.

Irrespective of the off the field antics by the Australian media teams, the series is set to be an absolute cracker. England are coming off a disappointing Six Nations campaign and will want to re-establish their position in the international pecking order.

Both sides are full of young up and coming talent who should feature heavily at next year’s World Cup.

Names to watch include Jordan Petaia, Nick Frost and Jed Holloway who could well form the backbone of the Wallabies squad for years to come.

Another area of interest for Rennie will be who is going to be his flyhalf going forward. Currently the three standouts with the experienced duo of Quade Cooper and James O’Connor being joined by the up-and-coming Noah Lolesio.

Jones will also be looking to blood young talent which is spearhead by the incredible Harry Arundell whose try again Toulon went viral.

The burning question however will be who can replace Manu Tuilagi who has unfortunately once again been ruled out due to injury.

Finally, Bristol’s Harry Randall will be looking to cement himself as the first choice in the scrumhalf berth ahead of the experienced Ben Youngs.
