Play like we did for the first 72 minutes and we'll give the Aussies a game. Defended superbly, Gale's kicking game was much better than it has been and the error count was much lower (good discipline in such an overwhelming atmosphere).
Bizarre why Tonga kept Taumalolo and Fifita off the pitch for so long though.
Agreed that the Aussies were the better side, there defence has been nothing short of superb throughout the tournament and stopped everything that England could throw at them (oh for a decent halfback). Gutted that Josh Dugan got that ankle tap on Kallum Watkins, the Aussies were physically spent and a try there would have seen England win imo.
Also just how underrated is Matt Gillett? He's taken his game to a whole other level these past two years and another brilliant performance tonight.
