Match showed rugby at its best

THE best of the northern hemisphere could not hold out. A brilliant scramble defence and great defensive lines added to sublime handling skills by the best attacking backline in the world showed off this wonderful game of rugby.

What a marvellous spectacle was the Australia versus Wales match. The best game in the world when played like this. Australia's ball retention and tactical nuances were at another level.

All the southern-hemisphere teams have mastered the art of finding long-kick touches. Teams from this jurisdiction should look and learn from the masters.
