England scrum-half Danny Care says he is relishing the matches with Australia and Wales at the 2015 World Cup.

The host nation have been given one of the toughest draws possible for the tournament, landing in Pool A alongside the world's third ranked side and the current Six Nations champions.

But Care is looking forward to the challenge and says that England will have to beat the world's best in any case if they want to lift the Webb Ellis Cup for a second time.

"Any team you play against is going to be a tough match but to draw Australia and one of our fiercest rivals Wales is exciting," he told Sky Sports News.

"To be the best team in the world you have to beat all the best teams so why not beat them in the groups? It's going to be an exciting pool to watch and definitely to be a part of."

Wales have already stated their desire to host their clash with England at the Millennium Stadium, an idea that has been played down by the Rugby Football Union.

Care added: "I heard that they want to play it at Cardiff and I'm sure England will want to play it at Twickenham. I don't know how they'll decide that, maybe a little coin toss.

"But I think all the lads are looking forward to playing in all the arenas: Elland Road, St James' Park, Old Trafford and those types of places.

"You grow up watching people pay football there and want to be a part of it so I think we're just massively excited to play anywhere to be honest."
