Welcome to our live blog of England vs Georgia in the Autumn Nations Cup.
Eddie Jones’ side kick off their Autumn Nations Cup campaign with the visit of Georgia, with the two sides facing each other outside of the World Cup for the first time.
Wasps forward Jack Willis will make his England debut today at open side flanker, after a hugely impressive season in the Gallagher Premiership.
He will have to be on his game right from the off, with Georgia boasting an intimidating forward pack.
England and Georgia are in Pool A of the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup, alongside Ireland and Wales who played last night in Dublin.
Scotland, Italy, France and Fiji make up Pool B with the first, second, third and fourth placed teams from each group facing each other in December to determine the winner and final standings of the competition.
There will be keen eyes on this Georgia side, with some believing that the Lelos should replace Italy in the Six Nations.
The Eastern European nation are two places above Italy in the world rankings, but a win today against the Six Nations Champions England would be a major upset.
Kick off is at 3pm and team news will follow shortly.
