Australia ended England's World Cup hopes on Saturday with their biggest-ever win at Twickenham in a disastrous night for the hosts.

Needing to win to stay in the hunt for the quarter-finals, England were soundly beaten 33-13, becoming the first host nation to miss out on the knock-out stages in the process.

The damage was done in the first half, with Bernard Foley scoring two fine tries as they Wallabies led 17-3 at the break.

England were outplayed both at the breakdown and in the scrum, but a comeback looked on when Anthony Watson scored their first try, followed by an Owen Farrell penalty which cut the deficit to 20-13.

Farrell was then sin-binned for a tackle off the ball on Matt Giteau with ten minutes remaining, and from there, Australia never looked back.

Foley completed a personal haul of 28 points, with Giteau sealing the win with the final play as he crossed in the corner.
