Eddie Jones' completed their impressive test series against Australia with a win in a 84 point thriller in Sydney today.

A pulsating clash saw England win out 44-40 to make the test series a 3-0 whitewash for the touring nation.

It continues the stunning form the Red Rose have been in since Australian Jones took over, making it nine wins out of nine with this series success adding to the Grand Slam they won back in March. 

Owen Farrell was in fine form from the boot, kicking 24 points of his team's total, while Jamie George, Mike Brown, Dan Cole and Billy Vunipola all crossed for the visitors. 

The Australians crossed for five tries of their own, with Bernard Foley, Michael Hooper, Israel Folau, Dane Haylett-Petty and Taqele Naiyaravoro touching down, while Foley added 15 points from the boot. 

It is the first time that a touring side took a series 3-0 in Australia since 1971, when a touring South African side claimed victory.

Elsewhere, Wales' miserable tour finished on a dour note as they were hammered by New Zealand in Dunedin earlier this morning. 

A much changed All Blacks side failed to let the intensity seen in the previous two tests drop as they ran in six tries during a 46-6 win. 

Beauden Barrett starred at fly-half as he touched down twice to add to his 16 points from the boot, while outside of him Ben Smith, Israel Dagg and George Moala all got in on the act too. Dane Coles added another try to represent the efforts of a dominant pack.
