The Wallabies fight back at the break against France

A late attempt at Brandon Paenga-Amosa has given Wallabies life during the break of their first Test against France – although the visitors still lead 15-7.

The Australians looked sloppy and disorganized for most of the first 20 minutes, making simple mistakes that the French were too happy to redeem for points. But some sick discipline from France gave momentum back to the home team and they were able to capitalize and get themselves back in the hunt.

In what might have been an early omen, Tom Banks’ kick from a French penalty could not be found and robbed Australia of an early chance to create an excellent field position.

A few minutes later, the Wallabies lost a scrum against the feed, and the visitors struck shortly after. Gabin Villiere was the receiver for a quick transition to the left and crossed through a rather large hole in the defense.

Stan Sport commentator Morgan Turinui nominated Harry Wilson for the first French attempt, saying he needed to “control the back of the scrum better” but was full of praise for the French strikers.

“Every French forward owned that attempt. “They got the turnover in the scrum, and each forward has become a little faster and stronger for Les Bleus after that phase of the game,” he said.

However, the damage was limited after Louis Carbonel was unable to convert a fairly simple kick.

The Wallabies, however, were able to get the rise back and appeared to have bounced back after Hunter Paisami crossed, but the attempt was rejected after repetitions showed that Jake Gordon’s pass was clearly ahead.

France had the wind their sails from there. Carbonel put them up 8-0 with a penalty close to the 20-minute mark before Noah Lolesio put a kick in the ground approx. 30 meters from Australia’s test line – where Villiere cut through the defense from the ensuing scrum to set visitors up further.

But persistent offside and maul penalties forced referee Brendon Pickerill to pull French captain Anthony Jelonch aside and give the talent back to the Wallabies.

In the 34th minute, another penalty gave Wallabies an attacking lineout close to the French line, and the forward pack was able to place Brandon Paenga-Amosa to a late team lifter.

Stan Sport commentator Justin Harrison called the attempt a “much-needed psychological blow” to the Australian attackers against their French equivalents.

“It’s an important part of the game. The Wallabies needed points, but also to put this mark physically, ”he explained.

Michael Hooper’s decision to go on trial instead of settling for a penalty was also praised by Tim Horan.

“A lot of confidence shown by Michael Hooper in the abilities of the players around the players … [he] know how important it is just before the break – great leadership of the skipper, ”he said.

Australia had no doubt been better off with the procedure from that point on, but a late overturned attacking lineout robbed them of the chance to make a further dent in the deficit.
