Manx rugby star to start against Australia
Manx rugby star, Bevan Rodd, will make his England debut against Australia tonight after Ellis Genge was ruled out following a positive coronavirus test.
Scotland-born Rodd plays at Sale Sharks and is currently uncapped on the international stage, will make his debut just three days after being called into the camp as a replacement for Joe Marler, with Trevor Davison providing cover on the bench.
The test match tie between the two nations will take place at Twickenham, kicking off at 5.30pm.
