England fans rejoiced on Saturday as the Red Rose completed an unbeaten calendar year with a 37-21 victory over Australia.

The Wallabies – the last side to defeat England at the 2015 Rugby World Cup – had the Twickenham faithful on the edge of their seats during the early stages of the game, racing to a 16-13 lead at the interval.

But the hosts responded in style in the second period, crossing the whitewash for two tries and notching a penalty before the hour mark, with the British & Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland watching on from the stands.

Jonathan Joseph wrapped up the victory with his second, and his team’s fourth, try of the game, with 2013 Lion Owen Farrell adding 15 points of his own from the tee throughout the 80 minutes.

It ensures Eddie Jones’ men enter 2017 on the back of a memorable year, and here we check out the best of the social reaction to a perfect 2016.
