” Manu Tuilagi will finally make his first appearance of the autumn when England face Australia at Twickenham on Saturday after being picked on the bench alongside Dylan Hartley. Tuilagi missed the opening three Quilter Internationals because of a groin strain and was rated ‘highly unlikely’ by Eddie Jones to play against the Wallabies, but is poised to end his two-year absence as a second-half replacement.

2 Tuilagi will make just a single appearance in the autumn series England have been cautious over his fitness due to the run of serious injuries that have ravaged his career and were forced to withdraw him from the bench against South Africa due to the latest setback suffered in training. In a surprise selection, Leicester’s powerhouse centre is joined among the replacements by England co-captain Hartley, who sees Jamie George win the race to start at hooker.

Whenever England have played top opposition under Jones, Hartley has been first choice in the position – status he has held since 2014 – but is now confined to a supporting role. The 32-year-old started the Tests against South Africa and New Zealand earlier this month, but deputised for Japan’s visit to Twickenham and was expected to be restored to the starting XV for the climax to the autumn.

Courtney Lawes and Maro Itoje form the second row partnership, Brad Shields features at blindside flanker and Sam Underhill will look to pick up where he left off against New Zealand in the number seven jersey. 2 Hartley has been dropped to the bench for Saturday’s encounter “We’ve picked our best 23 for the Australia game.

We know they have a unique style of attack so our ability to defend that is going to be important,” Jones said. “We are continually working on our strengths which is our set piece and our defence and they are areas that are progressing nicely. “I’m really happy with the direction we’re going in terms of the way we play the game. “We are developing a unique style of rugby, which is English and the players are proud to play that way. “Australia we know are a traditional rival and we enjoy the occasion of playing them at Twickenham. The spirit of the fans has been outstanding.” ” ” 1 Karl Robinson Charlton Athletic have appointed Karl Robinson as their new manager on a two-and-a-half year contract.

The former MK Dons boss succeeds Russell Slade at the helm of the League One club. The 36-year-old is the seventh managerial appointment made by Charlton’s unpopular owner Roland Duchatelet in the past three years.

Robinson will not officially start work until Monday but will be in the stands for Saturday’s clash with Sheffield United at The Valley. “I am honoured to have been appointed manager of Charlton and can’t wait to get started,” said Robinson. “Joining such a huge club with a large, passionate fanbase is a really exciting proposition. “I’ve inherited a talented squad and I’ll be doing everything I can to get the club back into the Championship as soon as possible. “I like my teams to play attractive football and if we all pull together, I firmly believe we can start moving up the table and enjoy a successful season.” Robinson returns to management just a month after his six-year spell in charge of MK Dons came to an end. He had led the club to promotion from League One as runners-up in 2014-15 but was unable to keep them in the Championship last season.

After a poor start to this season, he left the Dons by mutual consent on October 23. Now Robinson has been tasked with transforming the fortunes of their League One rivals Charlton, and will hope to be given more time than predeccessor Slade to make his mark. Slade was appointed by Duchatelet on a three-year deal in the summer but lasted just 16 games before he was sacked.

Charlton have won their past two games under caretaker manager Kevin Nugent, who will take charge of the team for the final time against Sheffield United before Robinson’s arrival. Addicks fans will hope Robinson’s appointment can help stabilise the club after a disastrous three years under Dutchatelet’s stewardship. The former Premier League stalwarts have been relegated from the Championship, lost thousands of season ticket holders, and supporters have staged a series of protests calling for a change in ownership. “
