England made history on October 3, 2015 by becoming the first host nation to be knocked out of the Rugby World Cup at the group stage.
A 33-13 thumping by Australia at Twickenham meant that Stuart Lancaster’s side bowed out of the tournament with one group game still to play.
A defeat to Wales in their previous match meant that victory was the only option for the hosts, who had reached the quarter-finals four years earlier.
But they were completely overrun by the Wallabies, with Bernard Foley scoring two first-half tries.
Anthony Watson crossed the line in the second half to give England hope, but there was to be no comeback and they went out with a whimper.
They beat Uruguay 60-3 in their final match, but there was no consolation.
New Zealand went on to win the tournament, with Australia finishing runners-up, while Lancaster resigned from his position six weeks later.
