After last weekend's loss to the Wallabies in Perth England have fallen further behind in the all-time standings between the two countries.

Quade Cooper's double and a try to skipper Rocky Elsom outweighed two penalty tries secured by England's pack. The tourists therefore remain in search of an elusive first Test victory on Australian soil since 2003 this weekend, although their midweek side defeated the Australian Barbarians in Gosford on Tuesday.

England and Australia have faced each other in two Rugby World Cup finals (1991 and 2003), with one victory apiece, and share a rivalry that dates back to their first meeting in Blackheath on January 9, 1909. Australia hold the all-time advantage with 22 victories to England's 14 with the two sides also battling to a memorbale 15-15 draw at Twickenham in 1997.

England's biggest margin of victory over Australia is 17 points - they won 20-3 in 1973 and 23-6 in 1976, both at Twickenham. Australia biggest victory was 76-0 in Brisbane on England's 'Tour from Hell' in 1998.
