  • Thanks for joining our commentary this afternoon. Until next time, goodbye.
    '
  • England end the November Internationals with a commanding victory over Australia, securing their best run of results against the Wallabies. The Red Rose now have six-straight wins over the Aussies and triumphed this afternoon courtesy of tries from Jonny May, Elliot Daly, Joe Cokanasiga and Owen Farrell. Israel Folau scored twice for the Wallabies, but it was another day to forget for Michael Cheika's men against their rivals.
    '
  • FULL-TIME: ENGLAND 37-18 AUSTRALIA
    '
  • MISS! Toomua sends the resulting kick wide of the posts to end the contest.
    80'+2''
  • Haylett-Petty's eventful game continues as he surges forward with a great run from the back, weaving his way through tiring England tackles. He gets within 10 metres of the line before being brought down. The space he creates allows Toomua to send a grubber kick to the corner where Folau is there to touch down.
    80'''
  • TRY! ENGLAND 37-18 AUSTRALIA (FOLAU)
    80'''
  • Australia's scrum wilts under pressure and yields another penalty for the home side. However, Farrell fails to find touch with his kick, allowing the game to continue.
    79''
  • Another forward pass from the Wallabies ruins an attacking break down the right side as Koroibete collected in space. England will have the scrum.
    78''
  • Farrell sends his kick through the posts and the rout is on for the home side.
    77''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! ENGLAND 37-13 AUSTRALIA (FARRELL)
    77''
  • England's dominance in the second half continues as the pressure tells on the Australia defence. Wrigglesworth makes a break through the line to open up the space. The scrum-half then helps work the ball to the left flank where Farrell makes a charge between two defenders before touching down between the posts.
    76''
  • Try
    TRY! ENGLAND 35-13 AUSTRALIA (FARRELL)
    76''
  • England cannot ram home their advantage as Rodda does well to spot a loose ball at the breakdown to stop the home side's surge at the line.
    75''
  • England move the ball from left to right before May goes on the charge. He gets tackled, although the winger gets off the pass that strikes Hooper's leg and goes out for a lineout.
    73''
  • George comes off for the Red Rose to be replace by England's co-captain Hartley.
    72''
  • Daly collects in a good position and he goes for the grubber kick through to May on the right flank that just evades the run of winger and goes out for a Australia lineout.
    71''
  • A roar from the England crowd as Tuilagi comes on to the field along with Hepburn, while Simmons enters the action for the visitors.
    70''
  • Australia lose the resulting lineout and England charge forward with numbers to break inside the Wallabies 22 once again.
    70''
  • May is denied an excellent try as England break on the counter. Australia's backs failed to cross the line due to a handling error from Naivalu, which allowed Slade to boot the ball downfield. Between Slade, Te'o and May, the Red Rose bounded away. May's kick allowed him to run down the flank before touching down, only to see his score chalked off as the initial boot from Slade touched the line.
    69''
  • Australia kick for the corner and try to put the pressure on with their forwards. 
    68''
  • Itoje crashes out of England's defensive line to bring down Hooper, but he concedes a penalty in the process. Toomua kicks over the top for the run of Haylett-Petty, but the winger cannot come up with the catch with Daly for company.
    67''
  • Haylett-Petty reels off a great run through the England line into the 22, but he cannot complete the score as he gets tackled short.
    66''
  • Farrell sends his kick through the posts and England have a three-score lead over the Wallabies.
    65''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOOD! ENGLAND 30-13 AUSTRALIA (FARRELL)
    65''
  • Williams comes on for Sinckler in the front row for the home side.
    64''
  • Penalty Goal
    Engand will go for the posts to secure the game as there was no advantage following Farrell's failed kick to May.
    64''
  • Australia collapse the scrum and England have another penalty. Farrell goes for the corner with a kick towards May, but Haylett-Petty does just enough to stop the winger from catching over the line.
    63''
  • England try to power their way over on the line, but Moon gets held up as the forwards go for the score. However, the home side will have a five-metre scrum.
    62''
  • Cokanasiga unleashes another brilliant run through the Australia line. He jumps high to collect an up and under and then weaves his way through three tackles. The winger surges for the line, sending Haylett-Petty tumbling once again, but Hooper gets back to stop the score right on the tryline.
    61''
  • Alaalatoa is on for the Wallabies to replace Latu, while Wrigglesworth is on for Youngs at scrum-half for the home side.
    59''
  • Cokanasiga has space down the left flank once again for the Red Rose. However, on this occasion the Wallabies are able to get men back to bundle him into touch.
    58''
  • Farrell sends a simple kick through the posts and England take a 14-point lead.
    57''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! ENGLAND 27-13 AUSTRALIA (FARRELL)
    57''
  • The pressure tells on the Australia line as Cokanasiga breaks a tackle from Haylett-Petty, sending the Aussie to the deck. The England winger turns on the pace to speed through the line before touching down under the posts. A powerful score from Cokasaniga.
    56''
  • Try
    TRY! ENGLAND 25-13 AUSTRALIA (COKANASIGA)
    56''
  • All hands on deck for Australia at the back as quick hands from the England forwards and backs are probing weaknessess by moving the ball from right to left.
    55''
  • England use their power at the scrum once again. Wilson drives the home side forward with a driving run into the Wallabies 22. 
    54''
  • A slight break in play as the referee is not happy with the scrum. It gives both sets of players time to recharge after a brisk start to the second period.
    53''
  • Farrell wastes a decent opening for England, sending his kick out on the full. The Red Rose are controlling the game in the second half, but will want to move out of striking distance.
    51''
  • A change for Australia as Polota-Nau comes on in the front row for Latu.
    50''
  • Itoje crashes into the Australia line after England's complete a successful lineout. However, the lock loses possession as Samu comes up with a strip.
    49''
  • England's power at the scrum wins another vital penalty to ease the pressure on their 22. Farrell kicks deep into Australian territory, setting up the Red Rose with a good platform.
    48''
  • Daly makes the interesting decision to let a kick from Foley bounce in the England 22. He has to offload to May under pressure and the winger kicks into touch.
    47''
  • Farrell sends his kick through the posts to re-establish a seven-point lead for the home side.
    45''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! ENGLAND 20-13 AUSTRALIA (FARRELL)
    45''
  • Daly produces a try to match that of his opposite number in the first half. Farrell creates the space as he draws a tackle and offloads to the full-back on the surge. Daly takes a brilliant angle to evade the Australia line and then speeds away from Genia and Haylett-Petty before touching down over the line.
    44''
  • Try
    TRY! ENGLAND 18-13 AUSTRALIA (DALY)
    44''
  • England get the penalty from the resulting scrum after the turnover. Their dominance at the set-piece is giving the home side a huge advantage.
    43''
  • Sinckler draws the ire of the Australians at the breakdown for his reaction after producing a turnover. The referee and the rest of the players have to bring the situation under control.
    41''
  • We're back underway at Twickenham.
    41''
  • It has not been a classic from the two sides, although Folau's try was a moment of inspiration. Both teams have made mistakes and this contest could well be decided by who commits the least amount of errors in the second half.
    '
  • It's all square at the break at Twickenham, despite England having the better of the territory in the first half at Twickenham. Australia were put on the back foot by an early try from Jonny May and two penalties from Owen Farrell. However, the visitors bounced back through a score from Israel Folau, while Matt Toomua sent two kicks through the posts.
    '
  • HALF-TIME: ENGLAND 13-13 AUSTRALIA
    '
  • Toomua sends his kick through the posts and it's all square heading into the break.
    40'+3''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOOD! ENGLAND 13-13 AUSTRALIA (TOOMUA)
    40'+3''
  • Australia are awarded a penalty for offside, although Cheika along with Hooper is demanding more from the officials. It's only a penalty for the visitors.
    40'''
  • Australia drive within inches of the line through the running of Kerevi and Rodda. The latter is only stopped by the tackle of Farrell on the line, but he may have used his shoulder to stop the progress of the Wallabies lock.
    40''
  • England have allowed their standards to slip towards the end of the first half. The Wallabies have a scrum in a decent position.
    39''
  • Toomua has a simple kick that the puts through the posts. Australia pull within three points.
    37''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! ENGLAND 13-10 AUSTRALIA (TOOMUA)
    37''
  • Out of nothing Australia are back in the game through a brilliant try from Folau. He collects in the centre of the field and has the march on Farrell and then sidesteps Youngs with ease. Daly has no chance of stopping his opposite number before he leaps down under the posts.
    36''
  • Try
    TRY! ENGLAND 13-8 AUSTRALIA (FOLAU)
    36''
  • Farrell sends his kick through the posts and extends England's lead.
    34''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOOD! ENGLAND 13-3 AUSTRALIA (FARRELL)
    34''
  • Rodda drops Daly onto the ground without control, which brings a furious reaction from the crowd. The referee spots the incident and awards a penalty to England, although he takes no further action against the Australia lock.
    33''
  • Daly makes a neat turn in traffic to evade a challenge and surges forward. He goes for the kick over the head of Haylett-Petty, but the winger gets back ahead of Cokasaniga to touch down behind the line.
    31''
  • To add insult to injury for the Wallabies, England win a penalty from the breakdown after their scrum. However, on this occasion, the Red Rose do not go for the posts.
    30''
  • TMO! Australia believe that they're over the line through Haylett-Petty, but his score is chalked off for a forward pass. The winger was the guilty party as it was his offload earlier in the move towards Kerevi on the right flank that was forward.
    28''
  • Genia makes an interception from Youngs' offload and makes a break into the England half. He looks for Foley down the right flank, but he sends his pass straight at his feet, wasting a potential scoring opportunity.
    26''
  • MISS! Daly gets under his kick completely and sends it about five metres short of the post. Not his best effort.
    25''
  • England dominate the Australia forwards at the resulting scrum and win a penalty that will see Daly go for the post from 50 metres.
    24''
  • Toomua tries an ambitious offload from right to left, but his pass to Hooper is not only forward, it also sails over the head of his skipper into touch.
    22''
  • England work the ball neatly around the edge of the Australia 22 between Te'o and Farrell, but the next offload to Slade is dropped by the centre under pressure. Neither side are operating at their best.
    20''
  • It has been a scrappy affair with ball in hand this afternoon. Australia throw the ball away under pressure as George makes a charge forward. His front-row team-mate Moon dives on the loose ball and gets the turnover for the Red Rose.
    18''
  • A little spell of pressure for Australia ends with a penalty for England as Foley hangs on to the ball under pressure. Farrell will send a big boot downfield.
    17''
  • Kerevi makes good progress for the Wallabies into the England 22, but counterrucking from Slade brings the ball away for the white shirts.
    16''
  • A better kick from Farrell on this occasion as he dispatches his effort through the middle of the uprights.
    15''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOOD! ENGLAND 10-3 AUSTRALIA (FARRELL)
    15''
  • Australia's discipline costs them once again as Rodda joins a maul from the side. Farrell will kick for the posts once again.
    14''
  • MISS! Farrell hits the post from his kick as he angles his effort with too much curl, it strikes the upright and bounces into the hands of Toomua.
    13''
  • England get a chance to reverse field thanks to a fine leaping catch from May. Daly sends an up and under to put Folau under pressure. The Aussie full-back gathers, but the tackle from Slade comes immediately. England's pressing pays off as they win a penalty, which will see Farrell go for the posts.
    11''
  • Sinckler breaks over the gainlline with a good run through a crowd of yellow shirts. However, Youngs cannot capitalise at the breakdown as he loses possession too easily. England are then punished at the ruck, allowing the Wallabies another clearing opportunity.
    10''
  • England win the resulting lineout, but cannot make further strides into the 22 as the Wallabies win the battle at the breakdown with a turnover. The visitors are able to clear the danger.
    9''
  • Another mistake from Australia inside their own 22 leaves Toomua scrambling back over his own tryline to gather a loose ball. He hammers the ball away before the white shirts can close.
    8''
  • Toomua gets the nod for kicking duties ahead of Foley and he makes no mistake with his first effort, sending his strike through the posts.
    7''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOOD! ENGLAND 7-3 AUSTRALIA (TOOMUA)
    7''
  • England are penalised at the breakdown for offside against Itoje. The Wallabies are handed an opportunity to get on the board.
    5''
  • Farrell sends his kick through the posts from the right flank. He is now England's leading points' scorer against Australia, surpassing Jonny Wilkinson.
    4''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! ENGLAND 7-0 AUSTRALIA (FARRELL)
    4''
  • England open the scoring as their scrum dominates the Wallabies. The visitors are driven back and it knocks them out of their defensive shape. Youngs collects out of the back of the scrum before feeding May on the right flank. He makes one man miss before touching down over the line.
    3''
  • Try
    TRY! ENGLAND 5-0 AUSTRALIA (MAY)
    3''
  • England enjoy a strong start to the match as a slight mistake by Genia leads to a bigger one from Haylett-Petty as Youngs charges down his kick. Foley gathers the loose ball, but the home side drive him over his own tryline. The Red Rose have the put-in at a five-metre scrum.
    1''
  • We're underway at Twickenham.
    1''
  • The players are out on the field, so we should be underway shortly.
    '
  • England have beaten Australia in their last five matches on the bounce. A win over the Wallabies would hand them six-straight victories against their rivals for the first time.
    '
  • The Wallabies are without David Pocock with a neck injury, which sees Samu slide into the number eight role.As previously mentioned Beale and Ashley-Cooper are unavailable for disciplinary issues, promoting Haylett-Petty into the line-up and leaving Foley at centre. Genia wins his 100th cap at scrum-half position ahead of Jake Gordon.
    '
  • England have made nine changes from their win over Japan as their key players return to the fold. Chris Ashton misses out due to a calf injury, leaving May and Cokasaniga to start on the wings. Slade, Te'o, Farrell and Youngs all return in the backfield, while Moon, Sinckler, Shields and Underhill make comebacks in the pack. Manu Tuilagi returns to action for the Red Rose for the first time in two years on the bench.

    '
  • Australia bounced back from their defeat to Wales with a strong performance against Italy. The Wallabies have been inconsistent throughout the year, epitomised by their standards on their November tour of the northern hemisphere. Michael Cheika has come under fire from sections of the press, but a win over England would be the perfect tonic to end a difficult week, which has seen a sickness bug spread in their camp and Kurtley Beale and Adam Ashley-Cooper stood down for disciplinary reasons.
    '
  • England returned to winning ways last week, beating Japan 35-15 although they trailed for a time in the contest. Eddie Jones and his team have been solid enough in the November Internationals, losing only one of their matches against New Zealand by a single point. A confident performance this afternoon would send them into 2019 with momentum.
    '
  • Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the November International clash between England and Australia at Twickenham.
