David Pocock a doubt for England meeting with 'neck stinger'

Petaia was just 24 hours away from making his Wallabies debut but will have to wait longer

Bernard Foley, who was moved to inside centre, was responsible for the Italy try after throwing a poor pass that landed on the ground and was replaced in the second half by Kurtley Beale.

Eddie Jones felt a sense of deja vu when he heard David Pocock was a doubt to face England and expects the flanker to play at Twickenham on Saturday. For Jones, that dropped off when England defeated South Africa and faith was restored when his men came within one point of defeating the All Blacks.

"I'm not going to say anything about the refree ..."

There was more controversy at Italy's second disallowed try, in the 14th minute.

"We have been too long in the bind which is something we have been working on for next week's game".

"In the attacking side of the game we have improvements to make, but we're still showing enough glimmers that we need to finish", Cheika said. He's a street fighter so it does make them unsafe, but at the same time we've had a tough year too and we don't mind a scrap either.

Veteran Adam Ashley-Cooper, returning for the first time since August 2016, played a role in both Koroibete's tries.

Conor O'Shea's Italian side were coming off last weekend's impressive 28-17 win over Georgia in Florence, but paid for a lack of discipline.

"Cheiks, he's my old mate, he's always at his best when they (Australia) are under pressure", said Jones.


Jake Gordon made his Australian debut with Israel Folau shifting to fullback to accommodate Ashley-Cooper.

Jayden Hayward's early break and chip found Braam Steyn on the right and although the number eight got the ball down in the corner, his foot was in touch after a great tackle from Michael Hooper.

Tebaldi broke through after 13 minutes with a solo run but the referee ruled that he was in an offside position.

The Wallabies have not beaten England in five attempts since they demolished them at the 2015 World Cup and the barbs traded by Jones and Cheika at one another over the past two and a half years have been fascinating to observe.

Australia held on despite Scott Sio being sin binned after 59 minutes with Italy losing Bellini to a shoulder injury.

Under fire following last week's meek attacking display in the 9-6 defeat to Wales, the Wallabies ran in four tries to seal an 18th successive victory over the Azzurri.

"We picked an experimental team, purposefully, to be tested and we got tested", he explained.

"If I was us with Owen Farrell off the field, I'd be a bit anxious". "I think they understand where we're strong and we understand where they're strong and it's going to be a battle of who can take away each other's strengths and find a way to probe their weaknesses".
