France hilariously gubbed at 1.01 after turning the ball over while trying to kick it out for FT.

"It was so French" as one of the local commentators put it describing the end.

Full-time: Australia 23-21 France
Australia win!

That was extraordinary. France don’t secure the lineout cleanly, but they do enough to retain possession, whereupon they throw the ball like headless poulets, desperate to find someone who can kick to touch to end the game. But they can’t! And the ball goes to ground, McDermott following through and Australia have the turnover deep in French territory. And then there;s the penalty advantage! Oh my word! But Australia keep rolling, they want the try, not the penalty, phase after phase, bodies strewn under the posts - this is an incredible ending! The Wallabies can’t find a hole in this defence so they spin the ball back for the drop-goal, which is smothered, and the penalty is awarded.

Just witnessed the worse referee decision ever in a game.  A red card for the Aussie number 11 was DISGRACEFUL.  The game of Rugby Union is finished

Aren't the referees forced to call it that way due to changes made to the laws by World Rugby? They are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

How can u call it like that when the French number 8 is ducking right down?  You cannot tackle anymore.  Mays well make it a non contact sport if that's the way it is going.  It was a brilliant hit from Koroibete

Exactly, Reveen, and while former players are taking group action against the sport's governing body for long-term brain damage caused during their careers, you have to understand where they're coming from.

The game is finished then.  Better calling it touch rugby from now on

Good contest so far.

Aussies very unlucky.  Much the better team with 14 players.  If their 2 starting wingers were still on the park this game woud have been over earlier
Report Latalomne July 17, 2021 12:59 PM BST
Good game.  Well done Aussies.

Top class performance from the 14 men.


Aus 33 - 30 France
