Wallabies Win Nail-Biter Against Springboks


The Wallabies hung on to score a narrow 23-18 win over the Springboks at Suncorp Stadium.

A far from convincing win, but the Wallabies will be pleased to get the points following the late withdrawals of David Pocock, Israel Folau and Adam Coleman.



Australia 23 (Tries: Hooper, Toomua; Conversions: Toomua 2; Pens: Toomua 2, Hodge 1) defeated South Africa 18 (Tries: Mbonambi, Mapimpi; Conv: Jantjies; Pens: Jantjies 2)
