Australia's territory game is brilliant.

Bateman is a terrible centre.

Some more composure from England near the line and they would be ahead

You have to go through the line in RL if in front of the ball. You can't just hang around in the defensive line. It's a clearer rule (good) but does lead to some odd results (bad).

True, but that's what makes a better team.

No - the only thing out of sync is the English attack.

They miss Hodgson.

The Poms really should have taken the points on offer from the penalties in the 1st half.

Yup, a repeat set had little benefit that close to HT.

Tom Burgess is having a nightmare here.

Pretty good effort from the Poms, the disparity in wealth and playing numbers in RL between the two countries is immense, Australia should never lose.

Been a good tight game though, much prefer this to Origin, still prefer rugby union by a mile.
