England v Australia 2013

England 20 - 13 Australia

A new-look England side took to the field at Twickenham as 80,000 expectant fans converged on the Home of Rugby to witness another sparkling test against Australia.

A bright, crisp Autumn morning awaited guests at the official hospitality suites at Twickenham, where hostesses greeted arrivals with champagne and smiles before ushering them to their reserved tables.

The atmosphere all around the ground built steadily throughout the morning as kick off approached for the first match of the QBE Internationals between England's old rivals Australia.

Newcomers to the Orchard Enclosure hospitality suite were delighted to find themselves based just yards from Twickenham's impressive East Stand; wining and dining in the very shadows of this magnificent amphitheatre of rugby makes this venue the most popular location to entertain guests on match days.

Once all the guests had arrived at the Orchard Enclosure, a fabulous four course lunch was served and with the complimentary bar in full swing, the atmosphere was building nicely as the game drew nearer.


The pre-match build up included guest appearances from injured England flanker Tom Croft and iconic Australian winger Stirling Mortlock, who each gave their expert analysis of the sides and their (mainly unbiased... predictions for the game to come.

Guest left 15 minutes before the match got underway, leaving them plenty of time to make the 30 yard stroll across Rugby Road to their first class seats in the East Stand.

Stuart Lancaster's side, spearheaded by talismanic captain Chris Robshaw, boasted a healthy blend of youth and experience, with England looking to lay the foundations of another great team as we edge closer to the Rugby World Cup 2015 on home soil.

The atmosphere inside Twickenham was electric, as both proud rugby nations went toe-to-toe in the early stages, like two heavyweight boxers relentlessly trading blows in the ring.

Owen Farrell's metronomic kicking ability faltered in the first half, missing 3 penalty attempts which would cost England the lead going into the break. Australia sensed their opportunity towards the end of the half and finally made their persistent pressure count, as Matt Toomua broke through England's defensive ranks and scored the first try of the game.

The start of the second half was met with rapturous applause from the crowd, who had seen enough from this new England side to know they could create chances and spark a comeback against their green and gold clad opponents.

Full back Mike Brown showed Stuart Lancaster why he should be picked with a fabulous display of counter-attacking rugby throughout the game, producing brilliant side-stepping runs from deep whenever he received the ball in hand and sparking the Twickenham crowd into life. It wasn't long before England started to exert pressure of their own on the Wallabies, which soon saw them draw level at 13 - 13 with a fine conversion from Farrell making things all square with half an hour to play.

Momentum had shifted in England's favour and the Twickenham faithful sensed that victory was there for the taking and the decibel level increased to fever pitch for the closing stages of the match.

Billy Vunipola, making his Twickenham debut for England, showed all the qualities that earned him a call up for the national side. Having been blasting holes in Australian lines throughout the game, it was the younger of the Vunipola brothers who took quick ball from a line out before offloading wide left to the blistering pace of Mike Brown. England were then briefly held up by the resolute Wallabies defence until a keen-eyed Farrell spotted a gap in the line and darted under the posts to record the winning try.

This late score was met with pure elation in the grandstands, sealing a memorable victory for England in front of a full house of passionate supporters at Twickenham Stadium.

Guests soon returned to the Orchard Enclosure in fine spirits, toasting England's win whilst enjoying the post-match hospitality from the comfort of the suites.

One final treat was in store for the corporate guests at Twickenham, as they were joined by some of the England players, fresh from the field of play, to give their analysis of what had been a hard fought victory over bitter rivals Australia. Our MC for the day ex-England legend Gareth Chilcott proudly welcomed Dan Cole and Courtney Lawes on stage to give their exclusive insight into the match, the opposition, and their thoughts on the current crop of England talent.

Popular comedian Aaron James then took to the stage and had guests in stitches of laughter before a fabulous day of rugby and entertainment was brought to a close at Twickenham.

Stuart Lancaster will be delighted with how his new additions fitted into England's shape and his side head into their remaining two QBE International tests full of confidence, but tougher tasks lie ahead for England, namely the All Blacks.

Referee: George Clancy (Ireland. Attendance: 81,500.
