21 minutes later Ikitau extended Australian lead to 10-3 following a run from Tupou once more Cooper converted for the Wallabies on the 22nd minute. On the 26th minute Boks were awarded a penalty which was converted by Pollard. The hosts went into the half-time leading 15-13.
44 minutes into the second half Boks retook the lead through a try from Am, on the 51st minute Australia took the game from the Springboks through a penalty from Quade Cooper, Wallabies leading 18-17. 61 into the game Koroibete outsmarted Boks defence and extended Wallabies lead. The match ended into a 30-17 win for the Australians.
