The final round of the 2022 Autumn Nations Series will take place on Saturday with just four teams competing for a closing victory.

Following an exhilarating and packed set of fixtures in Round 3, Wales welcome Australia at 3.15pm before England host South Africa at Twickenham at 5.30pm.

With some closely fought battles lighting up this year’s series, team selection will be a key factor in deciding which nations finish victorious on Saturday.

Here is when you can expect all of the team announcements:

Wales v Australia

Wales were stunned by a 13-12 loss to Georgia in Round 3 and will be looking for a strong performance in their final Autumn Nations outing.

Australia have won one game out of four this Autumn Nations Series, with three narrow losses on the bounce, meaning both teams will be hungry to finish on a high on Saturday.
