AUS 15-9 WAL (8-0-review)

by Big Joe Shep

The Welsh started stronger but failed to exploit territory and possession seeing only 3 pts gained. Wallabies dominated the scrum but serious indiscipline from both saw them with a 9 - 6 lead at the break. Despite 2 overlapping yellow cards for Australia, an unbelievable crass game strategy from Wales saw no points gained and effectively the game lost! Outstanding defence throughout that period, a strong finish and a Welsh yellow card in the last 5 minutes sees Australia finish top!
