The Castleford coach cannot see much difference in quality between the teams, and is expecting a close game.
“It’s going to be a really close game on Sunday. The Aussies will feel confident that they can turn it around after the New Zealand defeat.
“Our pack can dominate down the middle and with two great hookers supporting I’m sure we’ll be able to break them down. We’ve got quality on the edges, too, which can cause anyone problems.”
“The key to the Samoa game was that they won it and they did that,” said Powell.
“The England team hadn’t had much preparation in the lead up to the game and the warm conditions made it tough.
“I thought the pack stuck to the job and George Burgess never took a backward step, he played a big part.
