RUCK readers have picked their England XVs to take on Australia

Loosehead-prop: Mako Vunipola – 49%| The tightest call of the lot, presumably because Vunipola is still short of match fitness and Joe Marler is more than an able deputy. The Saracens man edged it though.

Hooker: Jamie George – 93%| A landslide win for the hooker. Has finally become England’s first choice after years of playing second-fiddle to Dylan Hartley!

Lock: Maro Itoje – 90%| The first name on the teamsheet for most supporters, nobody came close to the Saracens powerhouse.

Tighthead-prop: Kyle Sinckler – 85%

Lock: George Kruis – 60%| England’s lineout general, Kruis looks set to continue his Saracens partnership with Itoje. 

Blindside flanker: Tom Curry – 81%

Openside flanker: Sam Underhill – 83%

Number 8: Billy Vunipola – 98%| Vunipola has been slightly off-the-boil but there isn’t another legitimate option.
