What are the key questions ahead of the tour?

England head to Australia off the back of a 2022 Six Nations campaign which is difficult to label as anything other than a disaster.

The passing of time since the end of the championship in March may have diluted the strength of feeling towards England's disappointing showings, and of the want for Eddie Jones to depart, but a series defeat in Australia would go some way to bringing them back.

We look at the key questions facing each of England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland as they embark on three-Test tours of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Argentina respectively, live on Sky Sports this summer.

What happened last time England toured Australia?

England scored a 3-0 series whitewash over the Wallabies when they last toured Australia in 2016, under Eddie Jones.
