England head coach Stuart Lancaster has some key decisions to make ahead of his side's first Test of the autumn.

Australia are coming off the back of a miserable time in the Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Tests while this is England's first real outing since the hammering they took in Wales and the end of the Six Nations.

Lancaster, with the World Cup looming on the horizon, has to contend with injuries to a number of key players, so this is an examination of England's strength in depth.

With five players in this predicted lineup gaining Lions Test experience in the summer, there is no shortage of quality. Lancaster's task is to form them into a unit capable of replicating their thrilling win over New Zealand this time last year.

Check out the slide show to see which XV I think Lancaster will pick.
