Courtney Lawes makes Australian dig
England's captain addressed certain comments made in the media:
We just stayed in it. We fought for each other. I mean, they gave us a good bit of fuel in the press to be fair. They were talking smack about us. That motivated us but the boys stuck together, stuck to our guns.

Man of the match award goes to Steward
England's player of the year, Freddie Steward gave his thoughts after the game:
It was a battle. The Wallabies stepped it up, especially in the first 20, they came hard at us. We had to dig in and fight. We had to give it everything to get in front. Monster effort.
The full-back both scored and produced a try-saving tackle today. A man of the match performance.
Jones shuts down 'smack talk' question
Eddie Jones was resistant to answering any questions about the fighting talk floating around the press this week, stating:
We don't talk about those things mate. Honestly, we are just worried about ourselves. Maybe with the senior players, we spoke a little bit about it. We're a young team, we just want to look after ourselves mate.
Northern-Hemisphere triumphant
Owen Farrell will join his father in celebration after Andy Farrell's Ireland dispatched New Zealand in Wellington earlier today.
A day to remember for Northern-Hemisphere rugby.

He looks very disinterested, unwilling to crack a smile this early.
Gracious Kerevi praises England
Kerevi, who has been fantastic throughout the series, had his say:
You've got to give it to England, the defensive set. Guys like Marcus Smith, the forward pack, put their bodies on the line.
The golden boy
It will be Marcus Smith who gets the plaudits for today's win after a moment of magic, intercepting Australia, and scoring from half way.
His second half try will go down as the winner.
