Wales line and drove their way over through hooker Polota-Nau.

The Welsh hit back a few min­utes later when scrum half Gareth Davies breezed through a rare gap­ing hole in the Aus­tralian de­fence, and as they took the ball through the phases,

Leigh Half­penny fed Evans to score out wide.

The end-to-end bat­tle con­tin­ued and when fly half Bernard Fo­ley’s clever chip into the corner had the hosts scram­bling and Will Ge­nia played lock Cole­man into a gap to score.

Aus­tralia grabbed the ini­tia­tive on the stroke of half-time with a third try, as loose-for­ward Hooper barged his way over.

In the sec­ond pe­riod, after Beale ripped the ball from the hands of Evans on the half­way line, the full­back raced clear to score un­op­posed and the vis­i­tors’ lead bal­looned to 13 points.

Wales wing Amos dot­ted down in the corner late on. Half­penny missed the con­ver­sa­tion. In­jured cen­tre Jonathan Davies had to be as­sisted from the field at the end.

Next up, Aus­tralia face Eng­land at Twick­en­ham on Satur­day, while Wales host Ge­or­gia.
