A valiant effort, however forget the number of tackles,offloads or meters gained.
The telling stat is 12 errors by us and 5 by the crims.
They are the best team in the world for a number of reasons, if they are unable to break a great defence down like today with their normally regularity they won't make mistakes that allow the opposition a sniff being just one of them.

Tell you what though that was some 80 minutes if sheer brutality and no little skill.

Like in football there doesn't have to be lots of scoreboard action for it to be a great spectacle and this proves that point.

Congrats to the aussies, they were odds on favourites to win the tournament but had only faced one decent team before today and that was the first match.
Not sure having an Australian referee did them much harm either :lol:

It was a closely fought game. England were pushing the Aussies right up to the very last minute and anything could have happened.
But Australia hung on and deserved the win.
Great game!

Being happy never goes out of style
