England ensured they ended the year undefeated with a 37-21 victory over Australia at Twickenham on Saturday.

The English have won all of Jones' games in charge so far - a sequence of 14 matches - since he replaced Stuart Lancaster after the Rugby World Cup last year.

England are now second in the world rankings but Jones wants to build on the flawless year by winning the Six Nations, which gets underway in February, having claimed their first Grand Slam since 2003.

"The Six Nations, in my limited experience of it, is a different competition to the autumn," Jones said.

"Being an outsider to the Six Nations, I thought there was an absolute fear of losing rather than wanting to win. What we want to do in the Six Nations is go out there and win it.

"Also, you get the guys coming back having played three or four weeks of European rugby and they're in a fatigued state. You've got to find a way to regenerate them and get them used to playing international rugby.

"The only thing I'm interested in now is winning the Six Nations and to win the Six Nations we need more consistency in our set piece. I want to have the most dominant scrum. The scrum in the Six Nations is enormously important so we want that dominance."
