England coach Eddie Jones has made only one injury-forced change to his starting side for the third and final test against Australia in Sydney on Saturday, naming Northampton flanker Teimana Harrison in place of openside James Haskell.

England sealed their first series win on Australian soil 2-0 with an emphatic 23-7 victory over the Wallabies in Melbourne and have set their sights on sweeping the series at Sydney Football Stadium.

Haskell was unable to recover in time from a foot injury, the team said on Thursday.

"Teimana has trained well throughout the tour and deserves his spot," Jones said.

"He's an excellent defender and his robustness will be important to us at the start of the game.

"Jack Clifford is unlucky to miss out, but will finish the game for us."

Team:

15-Mike Brown, 14-Anthony Watson, 13-Jonathan Joseph, 12-Owen Farrell, 11-Jack Nowell, 10-George Ford, 9-Ben Youngs 8- Billy Vunipola, 7-Teimana Harrison, 6-Chris Robshaw, 5-George Kruis, 4-Maro Itoje, 3-Dan Cole, 2-Dylan Hartley, 1-Mako Vunipola

Replacements: 16-Jamie George, 17-Matt Mullan, 18-Paul Hill, 19-Joe Launchbury, 20-Courtney Lawes, 21-Jack Clifford, 22-Danny Care, 23-Elliot Daly
