England have been handed a tough-looking draw for the 2015 Rugby World Cup pool stage after they were pulled out alongside Australia and Wales in Pool A.
Wales had been tipped as the key team to avoid in the draw, which took place at London's Tate Modern museum, with Warren Gatland's side occupying an unfamiliar position in Pot 3.
And England will face the Welsh, Australia, and two sides yet to qualify in what looks the toughest of the groups.
Scotland will likely go head-to-head with South Africa and Samoa for a place in the quarter-finals in Pool B, while in Pool D a Europe-heavy group sees France, Ireland and Italy all drawn together.
Holders New Zealand face Argentina and Tonga, plus qualifiers from Europe and Africa, as they look to mount a defence of the Webb Ellis Cup.
Pool A: Australia, England, Wales, Oceania 1, Playoff Winner
Pool B: South Africa, Samoa, Scotland, Asia 1, Americas 2
Pool C: New Zealand, Argentina, Tonga, Europe 1, Africa 1
Pool D: France, Ireland, Italy, Americas 1, Europe 2
