England lifted by World Cup heroes
England head coach Stuart Lancaster insists Saturday's 20-13 victory over Australia was inspired by the presence of the 2003 World Cup-winning team.
The squad that lifted the Webb Ellis Trophy a decade ago were paraded at half-time of the opening QBE International with Martin Johnson, Jonny Wilkinson and Sir Clive Woodward among those feted at Twickenham.
England outfought the Wallabies in an ugly match and Lancaster takes satisfaction from prevailing before the men who delivered the finest moment in the nation's rugby history.
"One of the reasons I'm most pleased is because we won in front of them," he told Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme.
"They inspired us - me as a coach and the players - and we wanted to do them proud in the shirt they wore with pride.
"I'm delighted we won with them watching because it means a lot to our players to have done that."
