England head coach Eddie Jones says his team's change in attitude sparked their Six Nations Grand Slam success just six months after their early World Cup exit.
England put their home tournament failure behind them to seal the Grand Slam with a 31-21 win over France in Paris last weekend, their first in 13 years.
Jones: No one safe for England
Eddie Jones says no one from his Six Nations squad is guaranteed a starting place in Australia
Speaking to Sky Sports, Jones said: "It is a great achievement by the team and we are proud of the boys. All I have tried to do is change the environment, they are talented players and always have been and they will continue to get better.
"I think you have got to believe you can win and if that's arrogance, then we have got a lot of arrogance because we believe we can win and you've got to believe you can be better.
"I don't think that was one of the things they thought about a lot. They definitely thought about wanting to be better but you've got to think about it every day and you've got to live it every day."
Up next for England is a trip down under to take on Australia, where England have only won three Tests since their first visit in 1963, and former Wallabies coach Jones has his sights firmly on causing an upset.
"I think it is going to be great fun," said Jones. "Bodyline rugby, that's what we are going to play.
"We are going to get stuck in to them. That's how we have got to win the game, we have got to go to Brisbane and we've got to physically dominate the Aussies.
"I know how the Aussies think and I know what we have got to do to beat them and if we do that we put ourselves in the position to win the game."
