This week's RFU Podcast is in the England camp on the eve of opening QBE International against Australia at Twickenham Stadium.

We speak to Joel Tomkins, Lee Dickson, Marland Yarde and Billy Vunipola ahead as they prepare to face the Wallabies.

Saracens centre Tomkins wins his first cap, realising a "massive goal" on the same day that brother Sam lines up for the England rugby league side against Ireland.

Scrum half Dickson is calm and collected after raising his game another level at Northampton Saints this season while London Irish wing Yarde is relishing the chance to make a first international start at Twickenham.

We also hear from the younger of the two Vunipola brothers in the England team. Billy, also making his first Twickenham start, assesses the opposition.
