Aussies sink lacklustre England at Twickenham

Published: Tuesday 18th of November 2008

Martin Johnson suffered his first test match defeat as coach of the England rugby side as they lost 28-14 against a fresh-looking Australian outfit.

England were largely the victims of their own indiscipline and hesitation as the visitors moved the ball around with more pace and verve to expose a series of holes in the English defence.

The home side were also given a lesson in kicking as Danny Cipriani looked out of his depth compared to Wallaby boot man Matt Giteau, who punished England between the posts.

Ultimately, Martin Johnson will have been given his clearest indications yet of the challenges that lie ahead.

South Africa are next for his side and while they were given a fright by an energetic Scottish team earlier on Saturday, the Springboks will no doubt be looking to compound the misery of their World Cup Final win in 2007.

The world-famous Twickenham Stadium in North West London is the venue for all of England's autumn internationals.

LondonPass holders receive free entry to the Museum of Rugby inside the stadium – a fascinating look back into the history of the much-loved game – saving £10 for adults and £7 for children.
