Commentary

So England too strong, they'll fly to Brisbane for the First Test starting Thursday.

On Saturday there are two rugby internationals as Australia take on Italy in Florence looking to bounce back from their drubbing by England at Twickenham last weekend, while England aim to avoid any hangover against Samoa at Twickenham. Follow both matches on ESPNscrum with previews, commentary and full post-match analysis. Viewers in the UK can watch the Australia game live on ESPN.

On behalf of the ESPN Cricinfo team, this is Lawrie Colliver signing off - enjoy the Ashes!!
