England’s 37-21 win against Australia completed a perfect year for the Red Rose. But out of those 13 test victories, where does this home triumph against Australia rank? The conquest of the Wallabies was England’s best home performance since they dismantled New Zealand in 2012, but not quite their finest of 2016. That in itself is a hallmark of England’s …

Warren Gatland is quickly running out of potential assistant coaches.

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 …
