Wales and Australia show us how it’s done

Wales 29 – 29 Australia

Fantastic opening match of the Autumn series here in the northern hemisphere with a superbly entertaining performance from both sides. The rugby wasn’t always perfect with a couple of mistakes in the last 10 minutes as energy levels were exhausted, but overall each team performed in a way I’d be proud to see Ireland to reproduce.

Although Larkham was a fair choice for man of the match, my choice was Martyn Williams who had a brilliant game.

It was interesting in the post-match interviews to see how gutted the Aussies were – they had hoped to win 7/7 of their games up here. Tough luck lads 🙂 It always amazes me how high scoring rugby matches can end in a draw – with so many different scoring combinations it seems impossible. For these 2 teams, this was the first draw in their 98 game history.
If the rest of the autumn series is to this standard we’re going to enjoy some great rugby!

  1. It was a great match to watch wasn’t it? And I agree, Martyn Williams had a fantastic game. Here’s hoping we can go one better when the Aussies come over here.
