England claim famous victory

England produced a defensive effort for the ages to secure their first series win in Australia with victory in a phyysical contest at AAMI Park.

Match Commentary

83'Tom Hamilton gives us his final thoughts:

"Demons banished, ghosts exorcised. The England class of 2016 are history-makers and have rthe series secured with a game left. It was the most astonishing performance of sheer brutality, bloody-mindedness and power of mind over the bruising of the body. Chris Robshaw put in his finest performance in an England jersey while Haskell was also incredible for England. Quite how England won this with virtually no possession nor territory only they will know but the miracle-worker Eddie Jones continues to blend the most potent of cocktails with this England side. The celebrations will go on long into the night, and rightly so."
83'Dylan Hartley: "I think the key point is 'so far'. We have another game next week, Australia are a proud, proud team and will come back next week. We can celebrate a little bit of history right now, but we need to go again next week. Australia are one of the best in the world at attacking, four tries last week hurt our pride and we came back stronger this week. We hit hard and kept the score down. We took the onus on ourselves to defend better. The support for the team has been amazing - we need that support again next week. That's the message, why not [a clean sweep]? If we want to be contenders, we need to finish off the job next week."
