A spectacular try to Tevita Kuridrani, a monstrous performance by skipper David Pocock and a late missed field goal have earned the Wallabies B team a spirited 25-23 victory over France to maintain their unbeaten Spring Tour. Wholesale Red Wings Jerseys .Derided in the French press as a back-up squad, following mass changes to the starting sides which defeated Wales and Scotland, the Wallabies overcame scrum troubles and missed drop goal three minutes after the final whistle to escape Stade de France with a two-point win on Saturday night (Sunday morning AEDT).Whether they were labelled as the equipe bis or not the first team, I was just really proud of the effort, coach Michael Cheika said.We made some mistakes as well but I feel like there was a lot of commitment there from our lads.That gives them the opportunity to eye-ball each other in the dressing room after the game and say, you know what I did my job and I can look at my teammate straight in the eye and that is all there is to it.Bernard Foley was again the difference, kicking four from five and scoring a crucial try for a matchwinning haul of 15 points.France had a chance to steal the match at the death, when playmaker Camille Lopez sent a drop goal attempt wide from 35 metres out following a sustained attacking raid that Australia could only just manage to repel.The match highlighted repeatedly Australias frailties at the scrum but they were bailed out by a five-star performance from Pocock, in his first match as skipper since 2012, and lively No.8 Sean McMahon.The pair were pivotal in the Wallabies forcing 10 French turnovers - none more crucial than Pococks with three minutes to go, five metres out from the Australian tryline.Leading 13-11 at halftime, Australia immediately showed their intent with the free-scoring Foley crossing three minutes after the break.Foleys superb kicking was again crucial, despite the No.10 being a late callup following a failed game-day fitness Test to Quade Cooper.Each Australian try in the second half triggered a French response - first through No.10 Jean-Marc Doussain, and later livewire centre Wesley Fofana.But Kuridranis putdown overshadowed them all.He fended off French No.6 Charles Ollivon before acrobatically planting the ball one-handed with his airborne body over the touchline.I think we all thought we were watching NRL for a moment when he went in with his whole body over the sideline, joked Cheika.Kuridranis third try in as many games gave Australia a sufficient lead for a stunning defensive effort to keep the French attacks out until well after the final whistle.Australias halftime lead seemed an unlikely outcome after France dominated the early exchanges.Feasting on a back-up Australian front row, the French lapped up early penalties and field position to take a deserved 8-0 lead through winger Virimi Vakatawa.A Foley penalty in the 20th minute halted the French charge, and Australia capitalised four minutes later when New Zealand referee Glen Jackson awarded a penalty try to the visitors.Frances Ollivon was yellow-carded for bringing down a rolling maul, steered by rookie hooker Tolu Latu, before both sides traded penalties to seal the 13-11 lead at the break.
