PLAYER RATINGS: Where did it go wrong?
OPINION: The Wallabies' good recent run of form came to an end at a very dreary Twickenham.
In a game littered with errors, England coped better with the conditions and ran away with the game at the end winning 30-6, taking their points when they could.
Robert Seltzer rates the Australian players!
15 Kurtley Beale:
Sin binned in the first half and at fault for Daly's try.
14 Marika Koroibete:
Should have scored in the first half but mis-controlled the ball on his foot, superb defensively superb line from inside ball from Beale and unlucky not to score.
13 Tevita Kuridrani:
Another good performance, always willing to get on the ball. Great kick through nearly led to a try in the first half, bombed a try after fine work from Kerevi.
12 Samu Kerevi:
Great break in the second half and worried the defence at times. Still too easy to defend against at international level.
11 Reece Hodge:
Another quiet display from Hodge. Good long-range penalty but didn’t see much of the ball.
10 Bernard Foley:
Decent game from the flyhalf, but he didn’t get his backline going forward as much as he would have wanted.
9 Will Genia:
Not as influential as last week but very calm at the base.
8 Sean McMahon:
Very solid defensively, won penalties at the breakdown. Strong with ball in hand.
7 Michael Hooper:
Try disallowed in the first half, usual work rate, sin binned for second week in a row.
6 Ned Hannigan:
Busy again went off injured at half-time.
5 Blake Enever:
Struggled with pace of the game, didn’t show much in the loose.
4 Rob Simmons:
Decent enough 80 minutes without doing too much.
3 Sekope Kepu:
Solid at scrum time with Sio and more prominent in the loose this week.
2 Tatafu Polota-Nau:
Line-out didn’t function as well as it has in recent weeks.
1 Scott Sio:
Would have been targeted at scrum time but was very solid in the set piece.
16 Stephen Moore (On for Polota-Nau, 64th min):
17 Tom Robertson (On for Sio, 70th min):
18 Allan Alaalatoa (On for Kepu, 67th min):
19 Mat Phillip (On for Enever, 62nd min):
20 Ben McCalman (On for Hanigan, 40th min):
21 Nick Phipps:
Did not play.
22 Karmichael Hunt (On for Kerevi, 67th min):
23 Henry Speight:
Did not play.
