MELBOURNE, Mar 26 (Reuters) Australia outplayed Pakistan 3-0 in a bruising, ill-tempered men's hockey final today to claim their third successive gold medal and a double Commonwealth Games success for the hosts.

Penalty corner goals in each half by Liam De Young and Luke Doerner gave Australia a 2-0 lead before captain Jamie Dwyer put the match beyond doubt for the Olympic champions when he pirouetted past two defenders to score.

Pakistan's Tariq Aziz was sent off early in the second half after an off-play incident which left Australian midfielder Rob Hammond bleeding heavily from around his mouth.

Malaysia earlier secured the bronze medal when they beat England 2-0 in the third-place play-off.

Australia's women's team also won gold when they beat India 1-0 yesterday.
