Australia thumps France at RLWC
November 3, 2017 6:22 pm
A record equaling four tries by Australian backrower Wade Graham – including a first half hat-trick – inspired Australia to a resounding 52-6 victory over France in last night’s Rugby League World Cup match at Canberra Stadium.
After leaving the field at half time with three tries next to his name, Graham wasn’t finished yet crossing for another four-pointer midway through the second half as Australia asserted their dominance in their pool group.
Australian fullback Billy Slater also etched his name in the record books as his 13th World Cup try in the second half put him level with Bob Fulton and Jarryd Hayne for the most tries in the history of the tournament.
