Will Greenwood and Rupert Cox preview this week's autumn internationals, and James Gemmell catches up with Sam Underhill...

England won their opening Quilter International against South Africa 12-11 before losing to the All Blacks 16-15 a week later.

This week Eddie Jones' troops face a completely different prospect in the form of a visit from Japan, who they have faced only once and a team they will be expected to beat handsomely.

Jones, who coached Japan to a famous win against the Springboks during the 2015 World Cup, has sent a warning to the Japanese, suggesting that they "Pray, pray, pray. Go to the temple and pray. Just pray, it's the best thing. We're going to be absolutely ruthless."
