Rugby Union – Ford wary of impressive Wallabies

George Ford has admitted that England were rusty on Saturday when they struggled to get the better of Argentina and knows that Eddie Jones' side will have to improve if they are to beat Australia at Twickenham this weekend. England eventually defeated the Pumas 21-8 in their first autumn international but the Wallabies were far more impressive in their own 29-21 victory against Wales. "If you look at it as the first game of a series there is a little bit of rustiness there but I think we'll be better for having that game under our belt," said Ford. "I think it gives a clearer picture in the areas that we need to get better this week in preparation for Australia." England can be backed at 3/10 with bet365 to beat Australia on Saturday, while Jones' side are 8/11 to win the 2018 Six Nations outright.
