Following his match off the bench against the All Blacks last week, Dylan Hartley has been named to start at hooker. Despite the change, the England will be confident of repeating the scrum dominance they showed against the All Blacks in that game. The Wallabies have also made a change at hooker, bringing in veteran Stephen Moore. The front row of Ben Alexander, Stephen Moore and Benn Robinson is the same that defeated England in November last year, but all three missed the defeat to England in Australia in June.
