THE TIMES: No one needs reminding what happened in Sydney 10 years ago, and the appearance of that all-conquering England team at Twickenham this afternoon before the international against Australia will help to stir some wonderful memories. The grand stadium will be awash with nostalgia, although the focus ought to be on the future, not the past.

THE INDEPENDENT: Ten years on from that World Cup-winning night of nights in Sydney, precious little has changed in Anglo-Australian rugby relations. Also: It was the most famous single pound offered in England football history, and yesterday Arsene Wenger conceded that Arsenal's approach to signing Luis Suarez from Liverpool this summer, with a bid of £40m plus £1, had been flawed.
