Australia complete a clean sweep of wins against England

Tracey Neville's England lost 55-41 as Australia secured a clean sweep of their tour by winning the final Test to give them three wins from three.

Australia, inspired by Caitlin Bassett's accurate shooting, built a 26-20 lead by the half-time break at the Copper Box, London. The hosts also struggled to cope with the temporary loss of captain Sara Bayman to a knee injury as Australia led by 12 goals at the final break.

With Bassett scoring a total of 27 goals, equal to England's Helen Housby, and Bayman sent off for repeated fouls in the closing stages, Australia eventually extended their advantage to 14. Their last clean sweep in England came in 2004.
