England triumph Down Under

Visitors secure superb victory in Brisbane Test

England secured a fine 39-28 victory over Australia at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.

The English, who have never won a Test series in Australia, survived severe late pressure before substitute Jack Nowell's try confirmed the triumph for Eddie Jones's men.

Early tries from Michael Hooper and Israel Folau got the Wallabies off to a fine start but a trio of Owen Farrell penalties reduced the gap to a single point.

Jonathan Joseph's kick-and-run try, converted by Farrell, ultimately secured the half-time lead for England, with the visiting out-half and Bernard Foley exchanging successful kicks prior to the break.

Marland Yarde took an inventive delivery from substitute George Ford to extend the away side's lead, and the extras were again provided by Farrell, who soon added a penalty.

Despite another Farrell kick through the posts, a second Hooper try and Tevita Kuridrani's score brought Australia to within seven inside the closing 10 minutes.

With the hosts throwing everything at England, a Foley penalty closed the gap to four points.

However, when Nowell picked up Ford's cheeky kick and went over, the pressure was finally relieved, before Farrell's conversion closed out a superb win for the travellers.
