We asked Bryan Habana, Will Greenwood and Stuart Barnes how important this game is for Eddie Jones as Springboks host England in Twickenham on Saturday. live on Sky Sports.

After a fabulous start to his tenure as England coach, Jones has gone a little wrong and a difficult autumn schedule against South Africa, New Zealand, Japan and Australia could have far-reaching effects as he prepares for the 2019 World Cup.

A terrible injury list gives Jones some protection, but with five tests in six tests, he is under pressure to start the series with a victory against the Springboks …

Bryan Habana says …

"It's incredibly important for Eddie to win this game, and it was a disappointing year for England, with three losses at the Six Nations and a 2-1 defeat against the Boks in June.

Rassie Erasmus, South Africa's rugby director, says England coach Eddie Jones will "feel the heat" going into the November internationals.

"Eddie has been working very hard since the last Test win in Cape Town to start the autumn with a win.

"With the big three of the southern hemisphere, who are all in England in November, Jones wants to give a strong start to set the tone.

"Since Rassie Erasmus gives some players a chance due to the lack of unavailable players, the Springboks will be challenged in different divisions, and it will be interesting to see how they respond to these challenges.

Forecast: "South Africa will want to avenge its loss in 2016 and I think we will see a very close match, but I call for a four-point victory for South Africa."

Stuart Barnes says …

"The World Cup will not be won or lost on Saturday, but losing England to the All Blacks will make Eddie Jones uncomfortable in the short term, and it could be argued that this is one of the biggest games in his career."

Prediction: "Despite the absence of Faf de Klerk, I look at South Africa's standard and its extra carrying capacity, and I think they must be favorites to win this game. "

Will Greenwood says …

"There were some mixed messages in Eddie's press conferences:" To win the World Cup, you could lose all those games, "but then he said if he lost all those games, he's out of work.

The reality is that with all the injuries Eddie can figure out what kind of cover he has. There will be many interesting questions about specific players and combinations in winning. With regards to 2019, there are questions that Eddie Jones needs to find answers that are more important than a W or an L. However, he told my guys at Maidenhead RFC: "The beer tastes better when you win."

I do not think it's the end of the world if he loses this game, but what's a loss is that it's an environment of trifles when it comes to media days and opening newspapers. It becomes very difficult when you build out of a defeat.

The sun will win or lose on Sunday, but the mood at the England camp before the All Blacks game is determined by this result. An international camp after a defeat with five or six previous defeats is very different from a win behind a win.

Forecast: "I think it will be a close game – South Africa has a huge pack, but I think we'll make it and I'll win against England with five or six points."
