England take on Japan on Sunday evening (17th Sept) as the 2023 Rugby World Cup continues.
This Pool D encounter, held at Stade de Nice in France, will be shown exclusively live on ITV1.
The sides last met in 2018 at Twickenham, when England recorded a 35-15 victory, but they will not be taking Japan lightly this time around after they reached the quarter-finals in 2019, having announced themselves on the world stage four years earlier with a victory over South Africa.
However, while England have not been in stellar form over the past year, they often find their best form during a World Cup, as they did four years ago when they were runners-up to the South Africans.
Reports come from Jill Douglas and Ugo Monye with match commentary from Nick Mullins and Ben Kay.
