Tevita Kuridrani scores sensational try to seal Aussie win in France

Tevita Kuridrani scores sensational try to seal Aussie win in France

Australia secured their second narrow end-of-year Test victory in as many weeks as they overcame France 25-23 in Paris. Key to the Wallabies’ win was an exceptional try from in form powerhouse centre, Tevita Kuridrani.

While both teams entered the match off the back of wins the previous week, it was France who arguably had more to play for after another below par season.

It was a tight match throughout with the Wallabies leading 13-11 at the break. There were great tries from Virimi Vakatawa, Jean-Marc Doussain and in particular, Wesley Fofana.

But Kuridrani’s incredulous brilliance in scoring the vital try was the killer blow required for Australia to keep their ambitions of a first European grand slam since 1984.

Will Genia played a crucial role in the try being scored, starting the move with a typical dart through the French defence from the ruck before offloading to the on-rushing Sean McMahon.

Genia then threw a long pass to Kuridrani and the centre performed a near miracle to touch down in the corner.

That gave Australia a handy margin heading into the closing stages and Michael Cheika’s men withstood a fightback from France to edge out a two point win.

You can catch Kuridrani’s superb try in the video below plus full match highlights on page two:
