Sudden-Death Drama As Owen Farrell Wins The Autumn Nations Cup For England.

England have been crowned champions of the first-ever Autumn Nations Cup, after Captain Owen Farrell kicked the sudden-death winning penalty to defeat France 22-19.

It was a 19-19 draw at full-time, after Luke Cowan-Dickie rescued the match for England with a last-minute try.

Farrell missed his first attempt to win the trophy, after his penalty kick struck the post early into sudden-death, yet he made no mistake the second time of asking.

Brice Dulin scored France’s only try of the kicking-contest, with Matthieu Jalibert claiming the assist.

2,000 England fans were allowed into Twickenham for the final, as the Covid-19 restrictions continue to ease back towards normality.
