Dragons savour Wyning feeling
Australia had two goes at the Welsh line from short-range lineouts but failed, while Warren Gatland’s bench of Lions and occasional captains could not make a dent either. Leigh Halfpenny edged Wales ahead again with 10 minutes to go after replacement hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau infringed at a breakdown.
And they had one glorious chance after Samu Kerevi and Israel Folau made a mess of Gareth Anscombe’s high punt, Liam Williams gathered and recycled but Anscombe then passed into Dillon Lewis’s head rather than Jonathan Davies’s hands. Then the Wallabies drew level again, Matt To’omua with a penalty. But the crowd were baying for Kerevi to see red for his elbow-first follow-through on Halfpenny.
That brought on
Biggar, and the rest was consigned to history. WALES
We’ve been gracious in defeat for a long time...
