Australia beat Japan 32-23 to grab the fifth straight test win. A feisty Japan made Australians play hard and despite the loss, showed a lot of promise. Japan’s Lomano Lomeki’s crossing after tries by Tom Wright and Jordan Petai scored tries for Australia. The score read 17-13 at the half but tries by Tupou, Leota, and Mclnerley sealed the deal in a strong second half for Aussies.
It was a really competitive game. They tested us in a lot of areas and it was a really close game, in the end, they've just been improving every year.
