Stout English defence is nullified by Australia switching tack, attacking in the opposite direction with deep runners at speed. The defence is overwhelmed and the score stands, confirmed by the video referee. Foley has two tries now.
Foley again adds the extras. England 3, Australia 17. This is looking ominous for the host nation.
Its going to need a miracle now
England need to respond, and do so quickly if they are to stay in the tournament much longer. They are two scores behind now...
Australian rolling maul comes to grief on England's 22m, but they get the ball wide and a promising attack to halted by an over exuberant attempt to clear the England defender with a shoulder. S
o England clear their lines to half-way.
England fluff their lines in midfield but win a penalty which is quickly taken
More fumbling takes England backwards, but they keep the ball
The half ends as another England attack splutters into a knock-on. England are just another 40 minutes away from an early exit from the tournament. Will coach Stuart Lancaster make changes at half-time?
TV commentary saying England have NEVER been this far behind and won in test rugby... certainly they have their work cut out...
Lancaster must have something secail to offer at half time or else its all over for Englan
Next score crucial now. If Australia score again its curtains
Forty more minutes of rugby like that and England are out. A score was needed before half-time but they have to get the first points on the board when play resumes or they will have even more of a mountain to climb.
The two sides are back on the field for the second half
Ooh. Jonny May off and George Ford is on
Looks like England are going for broke. Farrell has moved to centre and Ford must be fly half
Ironic cheer from the crowd as Australia make a mistake for once...
England fluff their lines again, this time at the line out. But they win the ball back and Ford puts a high ball up that Australia recycle. Just.
resounds around the stadium as the crowd tries to lift England
Australia do it again. Getting a man over the ball at the breakdown and England are penalised for holding on. World class their number 6 and 7.
Real vim and intelligence in the Australian play. They have a line out on England's 22m
Penalty to Australia, who opt for a scrum just outside the England 22m. Dangerous...
England penalised for walking the scrum sideways and ref calls the captain Chris Robshaw over to warn Joe Marler for the third time. Next error could be a yellow card.
Bad news for England to get the wrong side of the referee at scrum time. Will only make their job harder...
Foley opts to kick for goal, which means England will need three scores to draw level.
Jonny Wilkinson saying at half time that England are worrying the Aussies every time they have the ball, can't see it personally. Australia absolutely strangling England
