Alba Ovale – 2017

L’Australia inizia con un successo sulle Fiji i suoi test match di giugno, in attesa di sfidare la Scozia settimana prossima a Sydney.

All’AAMI Park di Melbourne i Wallabies si sono imposti 37-14 sui Flying Fijians – ultimi avversari della Scozia del tour estivo – grazie alle doppiette personali di Israel Folau e Henry Speight e alla meta di Stephen Moore; Cheika ha schierato quattro debuttanti (Ned Hanigan e Karmichael Hunt dall’inizio, Richard Hardwick e Joe Powell in panchina) in un gruppo con un mix di esperienza e gioventù. Il mediano di mischia Will Genia, rientrato in patria da due settimane dopo aver chiuso la stagione in Francia con lo Stade Français, si è preso il titolo di man of the match.

Really happy with the guys, the intent was really strong but it was a performance that was indicative of a six-day preparation. We probably left two or three (tries) out there. The Fijians’ offload game was pretty hard to deal with at times,” ha detto il capitano dei Qantas Wallabies, Michael Hooper, al sito ufficiale.

I was really impressed with some of our defence in the first half, keeping them to zero was pleasing. They started to get hot with their offloads and they are hard to defend. There is a new team each week this June Series. We’re excited about that. I’m pleased with our guys putting some points on after a six-day prep.”
