Australia camped on our try line for the whole of the 2nd half and we didn't concede a single point. I doubt the ABs defence could've withstood that. Granted, in attack we offered little, but in defence I don't think anyone would deny that that was the best display a teams shown in years. I think instead of hating on England so much and saying the Aussies were crap, it would be nice if people could actually admit that the England team did pretty good.Australia lack the player depth to adequately replace guys like Giteau, Adam Ashley Cooper, Pocock, Beale etc. I think with those 4 players they are a better side and probably would have beaten England in at least the 2nd test and possibly the 1st.
People seem to forget this fact, also I believe the All Blacks would beat this current England side. England impressed me but not that much, they had no territory or ball in the 2nd test and just relied on Australia dropping it every time on attack.
Good defense, but lack of clinical play and creativity in the Australia's back line was evident and why didn't they take 3 points? Or do some pick and goes off the ruck near the line?
Australia were bad more than England were good in my opinion, so I highly disagree with the "current England team would beat the All Blacks" comments.
