Head coach Eddie Jones has been able to deliver an upbeat medical bulletin following Saturday's 23-7 victory over the Wallabies, revealing the squad is in "surprisingly good" health despite the physical demands of the second Test in Melbourne.

Haskell, who produced another mighty shift in defence, sustained a foot injury but the openside could yet be involved at Allianz Stadium in the climax to the series.

Nowell sustained a mild concussion in the second Test, but the wing has already passed the 'return to play' protocols and is available for selection.
