But it was Ben McCalman who impressed the most on Saturday night, after he made a game high 10 runs and just missed out on a try after following a Matt Toomua chip-and-chase. Strong at the breakdown McCalman was constantly involved in play.

As the scoreline suggested it was a game played at the front and several of the forwards were rewarded for their tireless efforts with Tatafu Polota-Nau, Sekope Kepu and James Slipper acknowledged for their strong form up front. Kepu was a huge part of the Australian scrum and was vital in in attack and defence and was able to end France's plan to pressure the Australian scrum.
