Despite smashing the French when they came to Australia earlier in the year, it was a different case for all involved in front of a huge crowd in Paris.

 

With the quest for an unbeaten Spring Tour on the line the Wallabies got off to a poor start conceding the first try of the game within minutes of the kick-off and despite a few positive glimpses they struggled to gain enough momentum to get in front.

 

After the match Cheika blamed his team’s regular errors and turn overs for the three-point loss.

 

Even though they played poorly, the visitors came within reach of a late upset win thanks to a try from Rob Simmons.

 

But it was a case of to little, to late as the French held on for a memorable win at home.

 

The Wallabies will now shift their focus to their upcoming clash with Ireland, with Cheika sure to have his men primed for the match.
