England and Saracens fly-half Owen Farrell has infuriated Australia fans after stopping a near certain try, with a controversial shoulder charge.
Australia came into the game in somewhat a state of disarray - having had two players dropped as a result of breaching team rules - were aiming for a spirit-raising victory, after what can only be described as a disappointing year.
After a promising first half, the Wallabies had managed to level scores at 13 apiece, but many fans attention was drawn by an incident that happened with almost the last play of the game.
Australia's Izack Rodda surged into the England half, looking almost certain to end the half on a high for his team and take the lead, but instead was grounded by a thunderous hit from Farrell.
Replays of the incident immediately highlighted the England fly-half's use of his shoulder, with commentators and pundit alike both calling for a penalty to be awarded after the illegal hit.
The Wallabies were eventually rewarded a penalty for England's infringing, but Australia captain Michael Hooper was insistent on highlighting the nature of the hit to referee Jaco Peyper.
Despite his protests however, and the seemingly clear-cut nature of the incident, the referee chose not to refer the incident to the Television Match Official, and the game went on.
Both fans and pundits greeted the decision with incredulity, with Sky Sports' Clive Woodward claiming that England had "got away with it", and should have been penalised with a certain penalty try.
Many fans were also quick to highlight the fact that this was far from the first time that Farrell had resorted to such tactics.
Just two weeks ago, a similar hit on South Africa's Andre Esterhuizen at Twickenham sparked outrage and debate amongst fans once again, as the England player's tackle went unpunished and no penalty was awarded.
Despite the incident, Australia will be looking to build on their promising start to the encounter, and capture an unlikely victory over their rivals.
