England’s Autumn International test series got off to a disappointing start last weekend as Eddie Jones’ side went down 29-30 to a fantastic Argentina side.
That was the first of four matches that England will play during the international window and they are back in action again this Saturday as Japan visit Twickenham. It will be the first time the two nations have faced each other since 2018 where England were 35-15 winners.
