Water Leak

My car has developed a real bad water leak. If I hook up a hose to the radiator water runs out at the back of the engine just about as quick as it runs in. It looks like its coming out between the rear of the engine and the transmission casing. All help and advice gratefully received.
Thanks

there could be several possibilities but first see if you can take a closer look and see if it is coming from a hose or the block
if it is coming from a hose replace the hose, if it is coming from the block seal it with that gasket stuff from the tube
