Match Commentary

82'

So what next? Wales will be confident of winning their eighth match in a row at home to Tonga next Saturday while Australia face a trip to Rome to face the Azzurri. They surely have to win that one, don't they?

For now the rugby keeps on coming, and you can click here for live commentary of France vs South Africa. Bye for now!

82'Australia captain Michael Hooper: "Our defence was great and we were able to repel them, but credit to Wales they stuck at it and were really strong. It's been a long time for them and you can see how badly they wanted to win. But it really hurts. We'll regroup, we've got two more matches [this month] and we've got a lot to play for. I back everyone, the coaching staff and the players."
82'That is a tough match to lose and Australia must be extremely frustrated. In a close, low-scoring match, they chose to kick for touch several times instead of kicking at goal. It's their eighth defeat of the year, the most they've suffered since the 1970s.
