England generated almost 50% more Twitter interactions than Australia during their Rugby World Cup clash.
Twitter has released the figures from the match, revealing that the #ENG hashtag was used more than 60,000 times on Saturday compared to the #AUS hashtag's 36,000 uses.
The most popular tweets included one from England Rugby which read "I'm sorry" and featured a message from the head coach Stuart Lancaster and one from a parody account of the Queen.
The moments that ignited the most tweets were the final whistle, Bernard Foley converting his own try to extend Australia's lead and the half-time whistle, in that order.
Mike Brown was the most tweeted-about England player while Foley took that title for the Wallabies.
