  • Time for a final lineout as the Wallabies clear to touch. Ball won and France go wide but Dulin's kick is loose and a forward pass from Australia brings this one to a close. It's a 3-0 series win for the Wallabies over a very sorry French outfit, whose long, arduous season is now over.

  • France take the lineout and then Michalak launches a bomb, Bastareaud knocking on in a mid-air collision with Folau. Wallabies scrum under their own posts.

  • Better from France as Bastareaud beats a couple, but his kick is poor. Australia clear and then try and pounce on France at the ruck, but to no avail. Final minutes now in Sydney as France toil with possession on halfway. Penalty, kicked to touch.

  • TRY, AUSTRALIA, PHIPPS! 39-13: Australia win the penalty and kick to the corner for a catch and drive. Now wide but France are offside. Tapped by Phipps and he finds a gap to dive over and score! Foley can''t convert, his first miss of the day.

  • Poor pass from Bastareaud hands the Wallabies possession, and they now have a scrum. Time running out on a tough series for the French.

  • Machenaud tries a blindside break, but his kick just flies into touch. Wallabies go quick, just outside the France 22. Lost forward at the ruck, France scrum.

  • Australia on the attack, Beale trying to grubber through but it ricochets back up into this own hands. Foley tries to go alone as the Wallabies rack up the phases. Phipps, McCalman and Horwill - all subs - contributing as Kuridrani just knocks on trying to gather a pass.

  • TRY, FRANCE, GUIRADO! 34-13: Finally a breakthrough for Les Bleus. Maul can't be stopped from that range by the Wallabies and Guirado is at the bottom of it to score. Machenaud converts.

  • French lineout won at the tail by Le Roux. Bastareaud carries but the ball is turned over, illegally though. France kick into the corner from the penalty.

  • Nearly something special from Huget as Machenaud's box kick over his shoulder just rolls into touch before the wing can gather and score. Australia lineout just in front of their line.

  • TRY, AUSTRALIA, HOOPER! 34-6: Lamerat forced into a knock-on in the tackle from Kuridrani, handing the ball back to Australia. Wide ball to Cummins who carries well, Australia now 40 metres out. Good run from Foley, inside ball to Beale and onto the captain Hooper for the try! A score made by the Waratahs. Foley converts.

  • Penalty France at the scrum, booted long into touch. 43,188 is the official attendance at Allianz Stadium.

  • Good lineout ball this time but Foley drops White's pass and France can clear. Back come Australia, Sio running hard. Beale over halfway, Palu (who has been excellent) has another great run. Chaos as Foley ducks a tackle and his pass is nearly intercepted by Huget, before Folau recovers and his ball goes into touch! French scrum.

  • Stolen by France! Another poor Australian lineout and Machenaud with the box kick finds touch near the 22.

  • Scrappy lineout but that's because France interfered with the man in the air. Second penalty to Australia, again we go to the corner.

  • Kick behind the defence from Folau has Dulin watching it roll into touch near his own line, before taking it quick. Under pressure and Dulin gets the kick away, a good one, up to 40 metres out.

  • Pass from Folau out wide for Cummins is a bit too far ahead of him and also forward. Sloppy from Australia but they do lead by 21 points.

  • Australia playing with width, looking for gaps in the defence. Ashley-Cooper grubbers out into touch by the French 22.

  • Wallabies looking to up the tempo but they now lose the ball forward at the ruck on the far side. Stop start opening to this half.
