Jonny May scores his second try

England will aim to extend their eight-match winning run against Australia when they head Down Under for three summer Test matches in July.

Eddie Jones has never lost to his home country while England head coach and will lead his team in Perth, Brisbane and Sydney, with the final Test set to take place at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

England last toured Australia in 2016 and won all three Test matches, including a thrilling third 44-40.

They last met in November as part of the Autumn Nations Series, with England winning 31-15.

“The Australia tour is a great opportunity for growth for this team and a good challenge at the end of the season,” said Jones.

“It will be the first time many of the younger players have toured abroad with England and it will be vital practice and experience ahead of the World Cup, along with the 2023 Six Nations. We last went there in 2016 and had a very successful tour.

“Australia will be a good challenge for this team. They have rebuilt strongly and they are well coached by Dave Rennie. We’re looking forward to getting out there and continuing the development and journey of this England side.”
