Two Wallaby victories inside a week, combined with Wales’ gritty defeat of England, have set up perhaps the most important pool match of the 2015 Rugby World Cup on Saturday.

We take on the Poms at Twickenham in what is a do-or-die fixture for the joint host and also a hugely important match for Australia.

A Wallaby victory relegates this England squad to the ignominy of being the least successful of the World Cup era, while a loss throws the so called ‘pool of death’ into a murky shark-infested sea of uncertainty which could prove very difficult to successfully negotiate.

For Australia’s part, the players have given themselves every chance with results to this point. A tough 28-13 win over Fiji in Cardiff was followed by a more comfortable 65-3 defeat of Uruguay four days later in Birmingham.

After today’s trip down the M40 to London the Aussies will no longer be flying under the radar – this is World Cup central – and the tournament focus this week is squarely on the match-up against England.

I’ll post again in a week’s time when hopefully we’re still top of pool A and looking toward the clash with injury-hit Wales, or you can follow more regular posts on my instagram, that of the Wallabies or their official Facebook page.

Until then, as always, Car’n the Wallabies.
