Australia have bounced back from a humiliating defeat at the hands of France last week to upset England at a packed Twickenham.

The Wallabies were facing three-straight Cook Cup defeats against England, but battled defensively throughout a tough second half to grind out a well-deserved victory.

With both sides scoring first-half tries, the boot of Berrick Barnes, playing at fullback, proved to be the difference in the 20-14 win.

Man-of-the-match Michael Hooper was a constant threat to England running on the edge of the ruck and at the breakdown.
