Sky Sports rugby presenter Alex Payne assesses the form ahead of this weekends Tests and thinks England can topple Australia in Brisbane. Ryan Jensen Buccaneers Jersey . Australia v EnglandSuncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Saturday 10.30am, Sky Sports 1This series has everything it needs to be an absolute classic. It would be easy to fill pages on all the sub-plots and storylines, sledging and sideshows but Im going to focus on the detail. The Wallabies currently sit second in the world rankings, and were of course responsible for the humiliation of the hosts at the World Cup last October. We all know Englands story since then - Eddie Jones arrival, the Grand Slam and a team growing into a force once again.In contrast, Australia are much changed from that last meeting, havent played for eight months and are without overseas figures like Matt Giteau, Adam Ashley Cooper, Drew Mitchell and Will Genia. Also removed are the injured Kurtley Beale and Matt Toomua so Cheikas garden doesnt look quite so lush - three debutants highlights this.Having been done at scrum time in October, Englands set piece is back on an upward curve, while the line out was perfect against Wales two weeks ago. The big question still remains over the breakdown - Hooper and Pocock will once again be targeting Englands ball on the floor. Paynes Picks Alex is tipping England to beat Australia in the first Test at 11/8 with Sky Bet Recent meetings will give England cause to believe. Prior to the World Cup crumble, England had won four of the last five between these two, and three of the last seven in Australia.Prediction: With a Grand Slam in their back pocket, a warm up match under their belt and their Saracens contingent back in place, I think Eddie Jones men have enough to take the opening test. England to win at 11/8 with Sky Bet.Double bubble: This match features two of the sharpest shooters in Test rugby right now. Anthony Watson has scored in his last four Tests, and 11 in the last 13 and is 5/2 to extend that. Israel Folau carried an injury through most of the World Cup, but looks fit and firing with eight tries in Super Rugby this season. Both Folau and Watson to score looks very interesting at 9/1.I also cant ignore Sky Bets Price Boost of Watson to score and England to win at 7/1. England rugby head coach Eddie Jones explains why he had to make tough decisions ahead of the opening test with Australia in Brisbane on Saturday New Zealand v WalesEden Park, Auckland, Saturday, 8am Sky Sports 1A month before they left, Warren Gatland was convinced Wales were going to win a test against the world champions New Zealand. He may still be saying the same thing, but I wonder how much the cracks exposed by England in the warm up have dented his confidence.New Zealand do have a habit of starting the summer slowly - two years ago they needed a 77th minute try from Conrad Smith to beat England and four years ago they needed a 79th minute drop goal from Dan Carter to beat Ireland. Add in the fact theyve lost Carter, McCaw, Nonu, Smith, Woodcock and Mealamu - 717 caps worth of experience - and it will be a much changed All Black side. But dont expect a significant drop off. Prediction: This is Wales big chance. One concern for New Zealand is Aaron Crudens 52 per cent at goal in Super Rugby this season, but history is still to heavy to knock me off the All Blacks. They havent lost to Wales since 1953, havent lost in Auckland since 1994 and havent lost in New Zealand since 2009. New Zealand will be too good, and should get home by 11-15 at 5/1 with Sky Bet.All Black brothers: Finding value on All Black try scorers is never easy, but Ive gone with both the Savea brothers to score on Saturday at 9/2. Wing Julian has an astonishing 38 tries in 39 Tests.Wales wrecking ball: Wales will hope to send Jamie Roberts on hard lines at New Zealands inexperienced centre combination. Roberts scored against the All Blacks on their last tour in 2010, and is 15/2 for more reward.South Africa v IrelandNewlands, Cape Town. Saturday, 3.30pm Sky Sports 1After a disappointing World Cup and a flat Six Nations, this is going to be an intriguing few weeks for Joe Schmidt and Ireland.A tough tour to South Africa has been made even harder by the withdrawal of Jonny Sexton but there is still plenty of experience and guile with the likes of Jamie Heaslip, Conor Murray and captain Rory Best. Im also looking forward to seeing what impact Andy Farrell has with Irelands defence, expect plenty of blood and thunder without the ball. But at the end of 12 months of rugby, Im not sure Ireland have enough to trump South Africa, albeit a side in transition.Ireland struggled with the physicality of Argentina in the World Cup quarter-final, and had similar problems with Wales and Ireland in this years Six Nations. The Boks will deliver plenty more of the same. The new head coach Allister Coetzee is a man with all sorts of pressures above and beyond just the game plan, but he has spoken publicly of evolving their style of play and exciting the rugby public. The Boks to be fitter, fresher and more physical.Prediction: South Africa to power home by 6-10 at 5/1 with Sky Bet.Bok to watch: Lionel Mapoe - in the absence of their record try scorer Bryan Habana, Mapoe has a chance to stake his claim in the new regime. He tops the Super Rugby try scoring charts with nine this season and 6/4 is worth investigation.Irelands Inspiration: Iain Henderson - on the hard grounds the gallivanting flanker could make a huge impact for Ireland. Fresh after a long injury lay off, he should be full of running and I like the 12/1 for Henderson to cross.
