Australia moves step closer to first UK tour in three years

England will host the tourists at Twickenham on November 13, with Australia wrapping up its trip against Wales in Cardiff seven days later.

Wales and England were victorious hosts in the two fixtures played in the UK against the Wallabies in 2018.

The side, coached by former Glasgow head coach Dave Rennie, leapt from seventh to fifth in world rankings following their defeat on the weekend of world champions South Africa in Queensland.
