Australia v Wales – Match Video and Highlights – Rugby World Cup

Australia held on to beat Wales, despite playing almost ten minutes of the second half with 13 men, meaning the Wallabies finish top of Pool A.

Australia took a 9-6 lead in the second half, extended by a Foley penalty in the 49th minute before things took a bad turn for the Wallabies. Both Will Genia and Dean Mumm were yellow-carded within three minutes of each other and Wales attacked the line relentlessly, but they could not find a way through as grim Wallaby defence held firm to eventually return to full strength and claim a famous victory.

Wales began the match at a great rate, with their pack exerting huge pressure, winning an early scrum against the head and forcing numerous turnovers in the half, but a penalty from fly-half Dan Biggar and a 3-0 lead was all Wales had to show for their early dominance.
