2014 Australia v France, Melbourne

Tour Dates 14-15 June, 2014
Match Date Saturday 14th June, 2014
Venue Etihad Stadium, Melbourne
Tour Duration 2 Days/1 Night
Melbourne plays host to the 2nd Test Match between the Qantas Wallabies and France in this best of 3 series.

Over 37,000 fans packed into Etihad Stadium back in 2002 to watch the Qantas Wallabies defeat France 31-25 in their last visit to Victoria. This loss signified the end of their 2002 Tour of Australia as they finished winless, but they only just fell short in Melbourne thanks to a drop goal from then captain George Gregan. It was a very free flowing affair as France served it right up to the Aussies with 4 tries, but the Wallabies were up to the challenge as they responded with 2 tries apiece to Matt Burke, Dan Herbert and Stirling Mortlock.

Can the visiting French team snap their 8 match losing streak in Australia, or can the Qantas Wallabies continue their dominance in front of a big Melbourne crowd?
