"It's doesn't get much bigger than this to be honest," he said. "I'm really excited, we're at home in front of 82,000 fans and it's going to be a great occasion. I've been happy with my form so far this season and Saturday is a real opportunity for me."

Farrell, making his first start of the autumn series, added: "What a game to come back for. It's a massive challenge, but one we're really looking forward to. I've been waiting for the opportunity but Toby has been playing well, I'm just looking forward to getting out there and showing what I can do."
