The 30-6 defeat for Australia at Twickenham, was mired in debatable verdicts which led to a try for England being given after various replays which looked like the ball may’ve been out, as well other decisions which led to 2 sin-bins for Australia during the match, which the Australian coach wasn’t too happy.
All this after a tight first half in which neither side could break each other down, then led to the referee sin-binning Aussie skipper Michael Hooper and full-back Kurtley Beale to yellow cards and led to England going in at 6-0 up.
England soon topped up the scoreline with more controversial after Elliot Daly’s try, which appeared to show the ball from one angle looking out for the touchline, but with it impossible to call after various video replays the referee gave the try.
Australia who have been beaten on the last 5 matches with England, thought their luck had turned at last when Marika Koroibete when through for a try, only for it to be disallowed for offside.
This seemed to signal the start of the end for Australia as heads went down, and Joseph, May and Danny Care all went over the line, to seal a comprehensive win for Eddie Jones’ team and Australia annoyed at some referring decisions against them.
