NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 18/06/2016

England have won their first international rugby series in Australia after defeating the Wallabies 23-7 in the second Test in Melbourne.

Europe's reigning Six Nations champions scored two tries to one on Saturday night to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead over the mistake-ridden Wallabies and clinch the Cook Cup.

The victory was England's eighth straight under former Wallabies coach Eddie Jones, setting up a dead rubber next Saturday night in Sydney.
