Error strewn England crash to Wallabies

First published in Sport

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.

England: Goode, Ashton, Tuilagi, Barritt (Farrell 74), Sharples (Brown 60), Flood, Care (Youngs 60); Marler (Wood, 48), Youngs (Paice, 74), Cole, Palmer (Launchbury, 53), Parling, Johnson(Vunipola, 48), Robshaw, Waldrom.
