England head coach Eddie Jones
England take on Canada at Twickenham this afternoon as the hosts complete their summer series.
Eddie Jones’ side, weakened somewhat by absentees taking part in the British and Irish Lions’ tour of South Africa, beat USA 43-29 last Sunday.
Canada, meanwhile, lost 68-12 to Six Nations champions Wales at the weekend.
Jones said this week: “We’ve had a really good training week, the team’s prepared well and we’re looking forward to playing against a Canada side which traditionally has been physically tough, so we know the first 20 minutes in particular are going to be difficult.
“You want consistency of effort and execution. We were in a situation at half time where we’d played some really good rugby and then for whatever reason in the second half we lost a bit of focus, and what we’d like to see is that attention to detail.”
Here’s everything you need to know about the game.
When is it?
The match will kick off at 3pm BST at Twickenham on Saturday 10 July.
