10 Oct 2015

Australia have played themselves into serious World Cup title contenders. Scotland surely won't stand much chance against them. 

10 Oct 2015

Full time: Australia 15-6 Wales. So the Springboks will play Wales in the RWC quarter-finals at Twickenham next Saturday while the Wallabies take on Scotland.

10 Oct 2015

80' They tap and go, but a knock-on follows. It's a big win for Australia. Down to 13 men conceding penalty after penalty on their own try line, but they didn't concede. 

10 Oct 2015

79' Wales penalty deep in their own half.

10 Oct 2015

78' Foley misses the penalty, but it won't matter.

10 Oct 2015

77' Wales must make something happen right now if they are to turn this around. But it's not to be. Right wing Alex Cuthbert is sent to the bin for a deliberate knock-on and Australia are home and dry.

10 Oct 2015

75' Australia have the penalty about 60m out. Every second that Wales don't have the ball is agony for them now. 

10 Oct 2015

75' It looks like the Springboks will avoid the Wallabies in the quarter-finals, but Wales have shown once more tonight that they are a world class side. It hasn't been the most attractive game of RWC 2015, but it has been one of the fiercest. 

10 Oct 2015

74' Wales desperate now but the Wallabies defence has been unreal tonight. 

10 Oct 2015

72' Easy as you like from Foley. Aus 15-6 Wales. 

10 Oct 2015

71' Substitute Kurtley Beale knocks on but the Wallabies have a penalty right in front. This could be the killer blow from Foley, who won't miss this.

10 Oct 2015

70' Wallabies now have their tails up and are looking good moving forward! Folau makes the break! 

10 Oct 2015

69' Penalty Australia! Adam Ashley Cooper makes the tackle and Wales penalised for holding on! How much pressure did the Wallabies soak up there? They clear their lines and take play up towards the half way line.

10 Oct 2015

68' Another penalty for Wales! Aus have 14 men on the field as Nick Phipps comes on for Genia. Wales set up the lineout this time. 

10 Oct 2015

67' Held up again! Wales will have yet another scrum 5m out. How much longer can this defence hold on for? 

10 Oct 2015

66' Wales still 5m out! They have to score! 

10 Oct 2015

64' Scrum reset twice now. This Wallaby defence has been immense.

10 Oct 2015

62' Wow! Wales got knocked back about 30m there but kept the ball. They had numbers out wide and George North charged for the line. But he is held up! Scrum Wales 5m out.

10 Oct 2015

61' Huge Welsh scrum but Giteau, now playing scrumhalf, makes a big tackle. 

10 Oct 2015

60' Another penalty to Wales and Dean Mumm is sent to the bin for taking out a player without the ball. Australia down to 13 men! Wales go for the scrum 5m out.

10 Oct 2015

59' NO TRY! Faletau is adjudged to have knocked it on! But Wales have another penalty 5m out for another offside. 

10 Oct 2015

59' TRY Wales? It really looks like it is! But Craig Joubert has gone upstairs for concerns over a knock-on. It was Faletau in possession. 

10 Oct 2015

58' Wales go for the rolling maul and Stephen Moore gives away another penalty! Wales go for another lineout.

10 Oct 2015

58' Wales go for the rolling maul and Stephen Moore gives away another penalty! Wales go for another lineout.

10 Oct 2015

58' Wales go for the rolling maul and Stephen Moore gives away another penalty! Wales go for another lineout.

10 Oct 2015

57' Penalty Wales! They tap and go quickly but Australia are not 10m back! And it's a yellow card for Will Genia for making the tackle when he knew he wasn't 10m back! Big moment this! Wales set up the lineout!

10 Oct 2015

57' Wales now have it 30m out.

10 Oct 2015

55' Wales get into the Australian 22m area but again the Wallabies turn it over on the ground. This time it's Fardy. The Wallaby dominance at the breakdown really starting to emerge as a deciding factor in this match.

10 Oct 2015

54' Aus can't win their own lineout, Wales look to bash it forward and then win the scrum about 30m out.

10 Oct 2015

53' Wales win an aerial ball inside the Australian half and look to move it quickly. But again the execution in their line is poor.

10 Oct 2015

51' Foley is accurate from right in front. Aus 12-6 Wales.

10 Oct 2015

50' Wales keep hanging on and get another turnover! But Stuart Berry is having a word from the sideline and Wales No 8 Taulupe Faletau is penalised for a neck roll. easy three points on the way.

48' Australia win a scrum on the right touchline 22m out after Wales, who turned the ball over under serious pressure, lost it forward.

10 Oct 2015

47' Foley bombs one miles into the sky but Israel Folau is penalised for contact off the ball.

10 Oct 2015

46' They get up the 22m area but then Pocock is all over the ball at the breakdown and wins the penalty.

10 Oct 2015

46' Wales looking to string some phases together just inside the Aussie half.

10 Oct 2015

45' It's safe to say that the Springboks will have an extremely tough quarter-final whatever happens here.

10 Oct 2015

44' Wales try and move it through the backline but they run out of space and also end up in touch. Aus take the lineout quickly, Foley kicks deep, and Wales then find the touch. 

10 Oct 2015

43' The Welsh defence rushes the Aussie backline and the pressure sees the men in gold throw it into touch! 

10 Oct 2015

42' But a loose pass from David Pocock gives wales the ball and they clear to the half way line.

10 Oct 2015

42' Wales can't clear their lines after the kick-off and Australia are in possession 22m out.
