How low can your chariot go?

Well, I can tell you England’s wagon is plunging to new depths over here in Ol’ Blighty, thanks to an outstanding performance by the Wallabies on Saturday at Twickenham.

The Aussies were greeted by rousing renditions of ‘Swing Low, Sweet Chariot’ in the early stages of their pool A clash but, led by a near flawless performance by Wallaby fly half Bernard Foley, the visitors first silenced the home fans and then plunged them into a deep state of depression.

This is officially England’s worst World Cup performance, the first host nation ever to go out in the pool stages, and aren’t the press letting them know about it?

I almost feel sorry for them, but there’s really no time. The World Cup rolls on and Australia is now busily preparing at its Dulwich College training base for what will be another tough encounter on Saturday against joint host Wales.

Win this and the Wallabies have a much easier quarter final (probably against Scotland), but they will have to beat the Welsh without the suspended Michael Hooper and possibly Rob Horne (shoulder) and Israel Folau (ankle), who both picked up injuries against England.

Wales have injury troubles of their own, but a wounded dragon is the most dangerous (just ask Bilbo Baggins), and there’ll be no mercy shown by the Aussies when they return to Twickenham on Saturday.

I’ll check in next week when we’ll know how difficult the road will be to the final. In the meantime, please enjoy these visual highlights, and follow more regular image posts on my instagram, that of the Wallabies or their official Facebook page.

Car’n the Wallabies.
