England fans have had their say this week, taking part in our weekly team selection poll during the Autumn Internationals to choose their team to face Japan for the first time in over 30 years, having last met at the 1987 Rugby World Cup in Australia.
Eddie Jones is preparing his side to face the 11th ranked team in the world and his former charges. However, despite the opposition's relatively low ranking, the fans have called for a full strength side to welcome Jamie Joseph and his Japanese cohort to Twickenham.
The supporters have opted for just two changes to the side that lost out in a cruelly close one-point defeat to the All Blacks, with hooker Jamie George replacing co-captain Dylan Hartley and fan favourite number eight Zach Mercer starting at the back of the scrum. Mercer's elevation sees Brad Shields dropped from the starting lineup, with Newcastle Falcons' man Mark Wilson shifted to his original position of blindside.
Meanwhile, the absence of Saracens lock and Maro Itoje's starting lock partner over the last two weekends, George Kruis, is an enforced absence following news earlier this week that the 28-year-old had been ruled out for the remainder of England's Autumn campaign with a calf injury.
This will be just the second time in history England will have faced Japan, with their last encounter coming 32 years ago in the 1987 Rugby World Cup. A fixture in which England beat their pool 1 competitors 60-7 in Sydney, Australia.
England went on to come second in their group to one of the host nations, Australia; who shared the tournament with New Zealand. The quarter-finals were as far as England would proceed in 87, with fellow home nation Wales knocking them out 16-3 at Eden Park, New Zealand.
England vs Japan: Saturday 17th November, 3 pm kick-off, Sky Sports.
