England meet France in the final of the Autumn Nations Cup on Sunday in a match that will pit a heavy favourite against an inexperienced underdog at Twickenham.

Eddie Jones made just one change to his side as Anthony Watson returned on the wing in place of the injured Jonathan Joseph, meaning England’s most experienced ever Test XV will take on Les Bleus in an effort to win the one-off autumn tournament.

But France have been forced into deploying one of their most inexperienced line-ups ever selected, with a selection agreement between the French Rugby Federation and Top 14 clubs meaning that head coach Fabien Galthie can only select his players a maximum number of three times this autumn.

It means that having already gone full strength in games against Wales, Ireland and Scotland, France are down to their third- and fourth-choice option in some positions, with two full debuts and four first starts handed out.

France are the only side to have beaten England this calendar year, but they will need to produce something special if they are to repeat their February victory in Sunday’s final.

Here’s everything you need to know about this weekend’s match.

When is it?

England vs France takes place on Sunday 6 December at Twickenham Stadium.

What time does it start?

The match kicks off at 2pm GMT (3pm CET).

How can I watch it?
