Owen Farrell gave the home side an early lead with two penalties, but Matt Toomua added the only try of the first half for the Wallabies, breaking off a tackle from Billy Twelvetrees before reaching for the line.

Farrell was able to put England back in front nine minutes later, bursting through the Wallabies' defence after Mike Brown was held up five metres short.

Australia battled hard as they looked to level late on, as Quade Cooper looked to create a try-scoring opportunity for Israel Folau, but he knocked on, allowing England to hold on for the win.
