Australia has defeated England at Twickenham -- the spiritual home of Rugby -- for the first time in a World Cup since 1991.

Never really being put under any significant pressure by the hosts, the Wallabies were strong in every area of play.
Taking the sting out of the vocal home crowd support by getting on the scoreboard early, the pace of the game was intense from the start.
Bernard Foley starred with the boot and two tries.

With the loss, England, unbelievably, have created history by being the first World Cup host nation to NOT make it through to the quarter finals and the fallout will see the tenure of England coach Stuart Lancaster now very much in doubt.
It is a sore that will bleed then fester and leave a big scar into the future for England players and supporters alike; and there was no surer sign of the disappoint and emotion being felt by England fans as the sight of many of them leaving the stadium before the end of the game.

There is no doubt the English media will be relentless in the days to come as the England team come to terms with what has happened..
Social media is already having some fun.
The emphatic 33-13 win means Australia progresses through to the quarter finals as now does Wales.
So the message from the Wallabies camp to Wales Rugby? - 'You're welcome!'.
The Australian support in the crowd was small in proportion but strong and the Wallabies appreciated it.
Of course, no win by the Wallabies would be complete without something special from star player Matt Giteau.Suggest a correction
