Australia vs. England PLAYER RATINGS
England secured their first ever Test series win in Australia as they downed the Wallabies 23-7 in a brutal encounter in Melbourne.
Eddie Jones' side produced wave after wave of heroic defence to keep those in green and gold at bay on a night to remember for the Red Rose.
Here, Sportsmail's Sam Peters rates how the players from both teams fared...
Mike Brown (rep Elliot Daly 77) – Still not at his best with ball in hand and made some flawed decisions but still provided snarl and defensive excellence. 7
Anthony Watson – Would have liked more ball but still produced a first-rate shift and tackled out of his skin. 7
Jonathan Joseph – Another England wide man who has more to come in attack but defensively flawless throughout series. 7
Owen Farrell – One of several players to take his game to a new level under Eddie Jones. Provides critical ballast alongside Ford. 9
Jack Nowell – Unlucky to miss out on first Test selection but an integral part of an England squad who showed all-round qualities. 8
George Ford – Looks a completely different player when shorn of goal-kicking duties. Controlled proceedings and tackled out of his skin. 9
Ben Youngs (rep Danny Care 66) – Another player who has stepped up his game under Jones and now looks to have secured England starting no9 spot. 8
Mako Vunipola (rep Matt Mullan 66) – Impossible to see Joe Marler reclaiming his loosehead spot after another titanic display by the hefty Saracen. 8
Dylan Hartley (rep Jamie George 72) – His left-field selection as captain has been a defining factor in England renaissance. No praise too high. 9
Dan Cole (rep Paul Hill 66) – Destructive scrummaging performance by the Leicester tighthead. Complete domination of opposite man Slipper. 8
Maro Itoje – English rugby’s greatest find since Martin Johnson. Has yet to produce anything less than a world-class display in England shirt. 9
George Kruis (rep Courtney Lawes 56) – Not his easiest ride in line-out with Fardy putting heat on but still a decent shift from an excellent young player. 7
Chris Robshaw (rep Joe Launchbury 72) – A second successive outstanding display by the former captain showed all his dogged resilience and character. 8
James Haskell (rep Jack Clifford 72) – A defining series for a player whose progress under Jones has been extraordinary. This will be remembered as his series. 10
Billy Vunipola – Another world-class display by England’s wrecking ball No8. Can now lay claim to being among very the best in the world. 9
