England dumped out of their own World Cup


Hosts England were dumped out of the 2015 Rugby World Cup following a disappointing loss to Australia on Saturday.

The Wallabies got off too a strong start as Stuart Lancaster’s men failed to hold a solid defensive line in the early stages of the game.

Bernard Foley produced a man of the match performance to score 28 points as Australia eventually triumphed 33 -13 at Twickenham.

This result sees England become the first host nation not to make it through to the knock out stages in Rugby World Cup history.
