Yeah. Controlled the game, capitalised on mistakes and played smart, taking the points when on offer

Congrats England.

Don't understand the Wallabies performance. Directionless.

This. A shame, Oz had a few really great moments. I almost wanted that try at the end to stand because it would have been a solo beauty. Good game from England perspective, Oz frustrating I'm sure. Both sides get credit for effort at least and Oz at least played all the way o the end and never gave up.

Absorbed initial pressure, low error rate, kicked their goals and took their chances. Looking good.

Hard luck for Australia, the players were willing but selections and game plan were weird.

Never looked particularly flustered, did they? A well-coached team.

Agreed. Given that there have been question marks over our mental strength, I thought we showed up well.

Fantastic job, Spivs.

Can't see anyone beating England in this comp. They're huge, fast, aggressive, skilful and well coached. Tough combo.

Could be four NH teams in the semis.

Even as an England fan it's sad to see good blokes like Beale and Hooper lose. With a new coach Aus should finally get going again now as the skilled team they really are.

Decent game, always enjoy England Australia. You’ll be significantly better with a good coach and I doubt we’ll be 7-0 in the next cycle.

Au revoir Cheika, hopefully now the Wallabies can move onwards & upwards going forward. Congrats to Eng on the win.

Very very impressive.
I'm almost hoping the ABs don't get past Ireland. That forward defensive screen was rock solid.

Not with that attitude Groucho. Unless you mean the England setting down a marker comment then we'll have to disagree.

No complaints obviously. Comprehensively outplayed and deserved. The right team over the past half decade worth of form rightly won.

As a bonus for us, adios Cheika. Pity Pocock played his prime years under a very average coach. I wish he'd play another one or two. But our well. Adios Pocock too.
