After their shambolic showing in front of a home crowd at the Rugby World Cup last year, England have continued their rejuvenation under new coach Eddie Jones, sealing a first-ever series win over the Wallabies in Australia with a 23-7 win at AAMI Park in Melbourne last night.
The English now head to Sydney with an unbeatable 2-0 lead over the Australians in the series, meaning the Cook Cup will be heading back to England before the dead-rubber match at Allianz Stadium next week has even kicked off.
Here's how the Aussie media and the rest of the world reacted to the Wallabies' humbling at the hands of England:
Eddie Jones' England break Wallabies fans' hearts to claim famous Test series win - Sydney Morning Herald
"Eddie came, Eddie saw, Eddie conquered.
England have pulled off arguably their most famous test series win abroad with their first on Australian soil with gritty 23-7 win in Melbourne.
Leading Japan to victory over South Africa at the World Cup was sweet, but bulldozing the Wallabies in their own backyard in a series they were not expected to win may just be the biggest jewel in Eddie Jones' coaching crown.
If his grin was big in Brisbane, it was twice as profound after his side put in a miraculous defensive masterclass."
Those are the bare facts, and in this moment of dizzy success after one of the greatest defensive displays witnessed in test rugby, it is hard not to be sensational and not to see things purely in black and white."
