It was another great weekend of international rugby at Twickenham with a packed home crowd watching England record their 17th win against Australia to put down a marker for the 2013 Autumn campaign.
In a cagey first half there were errors and missed kicks from both sides until Matt Toomua burst through the England defensive line resulting in a 6-13 score at the break and a 7 point lead for Australia.
The Australian decision to have their team talk out on the pitch was an interesting one, but it backfired in spectacular fashion as England fought back with 2 tries, the first from captain Chris Robshaw and the second from Fly Half, Owen Farrell, to win the game 20 – 13.
England Captain Chris Robshaw was pleased with the momentum generated by his team ahead of the remaining fixtures against Argentina and New Zealand on the 9th and 16th November.
The hospitality facilities after the game were buzzing and many England fans debated how the team will fare against New Zealand in 2 weeks time, could England secure back to back wins against the All Blacks and would England be able to repeat their success against Australia at the World Cup in 2015...
England’s 2003 world cup winning squad were also at Twickenham for a half-time presentation of the Webb-Ellis trophy to mark the 10 year anniversary of their triumph in Australia, they are currently raising money for rugby charities with an anniversary dinner and charity legends match against the Australian Barbarians.
