The Wallabies have stolen the most remarkable Test victory over France 23-21, with Noah Lolesio kicking a penalty after the visitors had failed to kick the ball into touch to seal the win.
The French, missing a host of stars, had the game won before a massive blunder saw the ball spill free and allow Dave Rennie’s men one last chance to go ahead for the first time all night.
Oh my France! Clock in the red, 1 point up, just catch it and kick it out and you beat Australia…… non non non non non this is how we do it……. pic.twitter.com/0JHJz9dtIO

Lolesio, who had missed a field goal with three minutes to play, drilled the penalty goal after the Wallabies had tried and failed to pulverise their way over for the match-winner.
It cost the French their first win in Australia since 1990 and ensured Australia’s winning streak at Suncorp Stadium moved to eight.
Noah Lolesio for the win 🙌
