England’s rugby union side are getting set for the second of three matches in Australia as their summer test series against the Wallabies continues this weekend.

Australia vs England Rugby

Eddie Jones’ side suffered a 30-28 defeat in Perth last Saturday, despite the hosts playing most of the match with 14 men, and will need a win in Brisbane to keep their hopes of an overall series win alive.

The second test of the series is being played at Lang Park, Brisbane on Saturday, July 9 2022.

The 52,500 capacity venue is nicknamed: ‘The Cauldron’ and is the traditional home of rugby league in Brisbane.

England have fond memories of Lang Park having won on their last trip to the stadium in June 2016.

A 39-28 victory in that test kicked off a clean sweep in that year’s summer series.

It was the third time that England had played at Lang Park and their first win there, having lost their previous two matches to the Wallabies in 2004 and 1998.
