Three penalties from Australia full back Berrick Barnes in the opening ten minutes of the second half proved crucial as Harlequins captain Chris Robshaw's England crashed 20-14 to the Wallabies in the second of the autumn internationals at Twickenham.
A first half Manu Tuilagi try and nine points from the boot fly half Toby Flood gave head coach Stuart Lancaster's men the edge at half time with a 14-11 lead, after a Nick Cummins try - featuring a forward pass in the build up - and two Barnes penalties had briefly put the Wallabies 11-9 up.
