What a finish.

A spectacular try to Tevita Kuridrani, a monstrous performance by skipper David Pocock and a late missed penalty earned the Wallabies a spirited 25-23 victory over France last night to maintain their unbeaten Autumn tour.

Leading 13-11 at halftime, Australia immediately showed their intent with the free-scoring Foley crossing three minutes after the break. Foley’s superb kicking was again crucial, despite the No.10 being a late call-up following a failed match-day fitness Test to Quade Cooper.

Each Australian try in the second half triggered a French response – first through No.10 Jean-Marc Doussain, and later livewire centre Wesley Fofana.

But Kuridrani’s putdown overshadowed them all.

He fended off French No.6 Charles Ollivon before acrobatically planting the ball one-handed with his airborne body over the touchline.
