England won the series 2-0 with an 18-6 win at Leeds. a thoroughly dominant display they totally outplayed Australia.

Fantastic effort. From the bits I saw the young Leeds forwards were terrific. Also how great is it to see an English half who can tackle like a forward in young Harry Smith

yes. the Leeds forwards were great as was Wilson from the bulls. both halfs backs were good as was saints full back welsby?
only Aussie try was off a kick. they were as poor as Aussie academy side I've seen

England really bullied them over the 2 games, and were excellent. Australia were really disappointing, it's the worst back line I've seen any Australian team bring over at any level.

Good game. Smith, Smithies, Holroyd, Newman all good, as was the fullback - the English one - whose name I don't recall,

Great! I’m already looking forward to watching them turn out for SL sides in a few years!

Historically we have always done well against them. Difference is most of their team will go on to do really well in NRL whilst the majority of ours will end up in the championship or on a building site
