A brilliant dad by Mitchell Johnson. The home team at look right back in the contest. But Graham Smith and Hashim Amla were quickly dashed on merit -- Australian hopes.This is a batting masterclass.Another desperate dive to dismiss Smith.

Hashim Amla finished one run short of a century in a recession. Today he duly converted his knock into triple figures. And his lead to more than a triple century. Hussey chased classic catch glory to no avail.

Iran on offer proved to stand and fight their hungry Jack's Palace. - - too appealing. Hashim Amla joined in the plunder by AB de Villiers. A desperate Michael Clarke turn to Ricky Ponting for a farewell bowling cameo. The South African keeper was unfazed, smashing his way towards a century.

Houston had led at half-time in Los Angeles after Calen Carr's strike. But an Omar Gonzalez header, and then Landon Donovan's penalty turned the match around.

Fulham lost at home to Tottenham, West Brom missed the chance to go third while Reading, second from bottom, gave United a major scare.

Of the top 10 teams this season, only Tottenham have conceded more than Manchester United, and it was unfancied Reading who took the lead. But such has been the Royals' form, United quickly got back in control. Anderson with his first of the season, before Tabb's clumsy challenge gave Rooney a freebie. More shoddy defending gave Reading a second, before Morrison's bullet header had the Royals daring to dream.Could this be a victory one140 years in the making?But those hopes were quickly ruined. Aussie goalkeeper Adam Federici, desperately close. Rafael desperately unhappy, hooked after 30 minutes. The Flying Dutchman rounding a remarkable 35 minute goal-fest.

Goals were harder to come by in the capital. Arsene's Gunners shooting blanks, as they faced a late Spanish inquisition. Prolific midfielder Michu with a double, Arsenal in trouble.

Also feeling the heat, new Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez has had no wins in three as the champions of Europe copped a Hammer blow. West Ham up to 7th with a surprise 3-1 victory.

A more important try for the Wallabies, Robbie Deans, and Nathan Sharpe. Halfpenny stretchered off the field. The stand team-mates unable to walk off the field themselves. With the match stolen in the final exchange, Nathan Sharpe had a conversion attempt.It has been a fairy-tale ending.It is what we spoke about or year.What is certain is his international career has ended on a high.

And it was a record score for the men in white, in front of an ecstatic Twickenham crowd of 82,000. There is nothing like the arrival of New Zealand to focus the mind. They are unquestionably the best side in the world. Earlier in this way, a virus swept through their squad. There were off-colour in the first half. Owen Farrell had the kicking back. He landed three penalties and a drop goal. New Zealand had not registered a point at half-time. That has not happened since 1998. After the break, they did it briefly burst into life. Two converted tries. It narrowed the deficit by van point. England was sent out of sight with less than '60 Minutes' gone. The great All Blacks were in tattered. Manu Tuilagi could afford to walk in the third. England's first win against New Zealand since to govern and to, and possibly the best ever. -- 2003. The weather coming up.
