England completed a successful autumn with wins against South Africa, Japan and Australia marred only by a narrow defeat to New Zealand.
Here, Press Association Sport examines the hits and misses from the series.
Fighting for his future at the start of the autumn, by the end of it England’s head coach had rediscovered the Midas touch that lit up the first half of his reign.
Discovery of the series. When Jones talked of a bolter for World Cup selection, he probably did not have Wilson in mind but after four Tests the Newcastle back row demands selection.
Jones loves the confrontational tighthead prop who grew in stature throughout the month and could be heard sledging the Wallabies with some amusing but X-rated barbs.
Destined to become the best lock in the game by the end of Japan 2019 according to Jones, and it is hard to argue against that prediction. A colossus who has become England’s go-to forward.
From the cupboard being bare, England now have two outstanding young sevens at their disposal in Tom Curry and Sam Underhill. An ankle injury curtailed Curry’s series but he has credit in the bank from the June tour to South Africa, while Underhill was magnificent against New Zealand.
With the World Cup looming, Farrell’s switch from fly-half to inside centre felt inevitable. Now England’s main man is at the very heart of the team where he belongs.
Farrell’s tackle technique
Jones publicly defended Farrell after his controversial no-arms tackles against South Africa and Australia that escaped punishment, but he knows the Saracens playmaker is treading a dangerous line.
Unable to make the impact at inside centre England would have hoped for, although injury setbacks have denied him an extended run of games. Will be persevered with, but must show more in attack.
A solid autumn for the Kiwi import, but has yet to make the impact of Chris Robshaw before him while Courtney Lawes and Wilson appear better options at six. The confusion lies over why Shields was fast-tracked by England.
Elliot Daly at full-back
Daly is an outstanding player and one of England’s main dangermen, but he has failed to convince at full-back despite a run of seven games in the position.
