Wales vs South Africa
Wales completed their first autumn series clean sweep with a confident 20-11 victory over South Africa in Cardiff. Converted tries from Tomas Francis and Liam Williams by Gareth Anscombe helped the Welsh lead 11 points at halftime with Handre Pollard slotting South Africa’s points. Jesse Kriel unconverted try and Elton Jantjies penalty in the second closed in the gap before Dan Biggar secured Wales victory with two penalties.

England vs Australia

England romped a 37-18 win over Australia completing a successful Autumn series marred only by a controversial defeat by All Blacks. A tetrad of tries from Elliot Daly, Johnny May, Cokanasiga and Farrell, successful conversions and three penalties from Owen Farrell were enough to down Israel Folau brace of tries, successful conversions and two penalties by Matt Toomua for Wallabies.
