England completed a 3-0 mark in their test match series against the Wallabies in Australia, defeating the home XV 44-40. It represented the most points England ever scored against Australia in the two nations' long rugby history. The Wallabies hold a 25-21 record, the series starting in 1909.
The whitewash proved sweet revenge for the Australian victory against England in Pool A of the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
It also marked the first at home, three defeat test against an Australian side since South Africa swept the Wallabies in 1971.
For the victorious Red Roses, this triumph extended the English winning skein to nine in a row.
