England completed a whitewash in their 2016 tour of Australia, beating the Wallabies 44-40 at the Sydney Football Stadium in their breathless third Test on Saturday, with the two sides sharing nine tries. 

A thrilling match saw both sides exchange the lead throughout. Dan Cole opened the scoring for England before Bernard Foley and Dane Haylett-Petty responded with tries of their own. Mike Brown put Eddie Jones' side back in contention before half-time.

Billy Vunipola and Michael Hooper exchanged early tries after the restart, as did Israel Folau and substitute Jamie George midway through the second half, but despite Taqele Naiyaravoro's try at the death, Australia could not catch their opponents.

Neither side will be proud of their defensive display here, but both attacked well and repeatedly took the opportunities their opponents presented. Owen Farrell was crucial, kicking 24 points for the visitors.

England capped a strong start with a try, Cole scrambling over from close range after some good work by Ben Youngs and Mako Vunipola.



The Wallabies hit back immediately, though, after a missed tackle from Jack Nowell allowed Foley to charge over before converting himself.

Australia continued to build pressure as England repeatedly missed tackles and soon put themselves ahead after they worked the ball to Haylett-Petty in the corner. ESPN Scrum's Tom Hamilton noted the visitors' struggles without James Haskell, who was replaced in the starting lineup by Teimana Harrison:



Farrell reduced the deficit with a penalty following a scrum at Australia's 22, but Foley quickly replied with one of his own.

England clawed their way back in front soon after, though, when Brown went over after latching onto a delightful pass over the top from Anthony Watson.
