Australia on verge of embarrassing series defeat to France after sickening red card offence
No one gave this young French side a chance as they went into this tour down under.
With the team missing many of their big names as well as having to undergo stringent isolation rules – it looked like a Wallabies whitewash was the only realistic outcome.
Fast-forward three weeks and Les Bleus are on the verge of a historic series victory – just 4 days after recording a famous first win in Australia for over thirty years.
The men in green and gold were full of confidence as tonights clash kicked off this evening in Brisbane with a packed out Suncorp Stadium.
The mood soon changed after an early injury to their talismanic winger Filipo Daugunu.
Things went from bad to worse after this sickening red card from a shoulder to head contact on the French skipper.
