England drew the Test series last week vs the Wallabies after prevailing 25–17. The Wallabies did everything they could to claw back at what was a 19–0 deficit at one stage, but fell short in the end. They weren't helped by a lack of discipline and being hit with even more injuries.

Australia scored 2 tries to England's 1, but it was the boot of the latter's Owen Farrell that proved the difference, slotting over 6 penalty goals and 1 conversion.

It has set the scene for a thrilling decider.

Wallabies vs England match preview

The most talked about person on the field for the first 2 Tests hasn't been a player but the referee. Of particular contention has been the deliberate knock-on yellow card, which saw both the Wallabies and England have a player binned over the supposed infringement last Test.

But the rule is here to stay and it seems the side which keeps their discipline will come out on top.

Wallabies vs England

Both sides have injury concerns after the first 2 Tests. For the Wallabies, it will see them testing their depths. The likes of Harry Wilson and Reece Hodge will pull on the gold jersey for the first time this year, while ex-NRL player Suliasi Vunivalu will make his Test debut from the bench.

England too have their own injury worries with Maro Itoje and Sam Underhill out, but it's nowhere to the extent of what the Wallabies are facing.

The Wallabies showed last Test that once they got themselves into England territory, they could score points. The problem was getting there in the first place. Meanwhile, England snapped a 4 game losing streak through early pressure.

There's no doubt it will be a hard fought game, with no quarter given by either side. But England might just have the edge to be the inaugural winners of the newly minted Ella-Mobbs Cup.
