Obviously one of the fullbacks is going to play on the wing, as they have done already in State of Origin.
Australia is missing their four best centres, namely Greg Inglis, Justin Hodges, Michael Jennings and Jamie Lyon. Willie Tonga and Brent Tate are the third choice centres, pending the return to best form of Mark Gasnier! The Australian strength in depth in that position is amazing, because they are each better than Shenton and Atkins.
In the backs the only talent England has that is close to that of the Australians' standard is Sam Tomkins.
So can England win its game against Australia in the forwards?
