Wales stage a second-half comeback against Australia but still fall to a 30-26 defeat in the final Autumn International.

Australia have registered a narrow 30-26 victory over Wales at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff in the Autumn Internationals.

The hosts surged into a 13-3 lead early on, thanks to a try from George North and two penalties from Leigh Halfpenny.

However, good play from Christian Leali'ifano and Israel Folau saw the Aussies stage a comeback and then Joe Tomane scored the third try for the visitors to extend their advantage to 30-16.

The Red Dragons, though, refused to buckle down in front of over 67,000 spectators and rallied to add 10 more points to their score.

First North scored his second try of the contest and then Rhys Priestland converted a penalty, but the visitors held on for the victory despite having fly-half Quade Cooper sin-binned with five minutes of the match remaining.
