Koroibete and the Wallabies celebrate after his try

Fiji born Wallabies Winger Marika Koroibete crossed for his fourth try in three Tests as the Wallabies tasted their first Bledisloe Test victory in more than two years with a 23‑18 win over New Zealand in Brisbane last night.

Australia had a point to prove to their trans‑Tasman enemies ‑ and they did it, ending a run of seven straight defeats to score their first win over New Zealand since August 2015.

Australia scored three tries to two, showing new‑found grit to close out the match as New Zealand mounted a late rally in front of 45,107 supporters who braved the constant rain.

New Zealand beat Australia 54‑34 in Sydney and 35‑29 in Dunedin during the Rugby Championship and so were already assured of retaining the Bledisloe Cup for a 15th successive season.
