Scotland are a top team - Cheika

"Once we have done a more in depth review we will make some changes that we think will help the team get the thing that we want to get, which is more urgency around the paddock."Italy were well beaten by Scotland before being beaten by a Ben Volavola drop goal against Fiji Saturday but the Wallabies are in no position to take any opposition lightly".

Michael Hooper of the Wallabies shows his frustration after being penalised during the International Test match between the Australian Wallabies and Scotland at Allianz Stadium on June 17, 2017 in Sydney, Australia. "I'm the ultimate believer in our guys to do the job and maybe too much so tonight", Hooper said.

The Wallabies were their own worst enemies in a ragged first half, gifting the Scots two tries to trail at half-time as Israel Folau replied with two signature tries, making it four in his last two Tests.

"I did think at 72 minutes, when we were five points up, would they go for three points and that would just leave it at a one score game, or a one-penalty game", Townsend said.

The Wallabies finally got on the board with a try to Israel Folau around the twenty-minute mark after a number of penalties went their way.

"You can not deny the fact that we've been on the wrong side of a couple of these against the Aussies for the last couple of years, and it was nice to close one out", Barclay told reporters after Saturday's triumph.

"I don't think we speak enough about the skills that the guys have", he said.

Plenty in the Scottish side stood up, particularly towards the end with their defence but Finn Russell gets the nod for leading the Scots around the park and even bagging a try for his efforts.

"When we looked after the ball we scored tries", he said.

But Scotland responded soon after, a fine team try finishing with Watson going over in the corner.

"I'm disappointed we couldn't get over the line".

The Scots were missing their three best players to the British Lions squad, but still managed to outplay the Australians in front of a shocked home crowd.

Both sides were happy to run the ball but neither could make much headway when they did with their defences very much on top. Do you want to keep playing footy or do you want to kick over there?

Ireland kept the pressure on after the break with Conan crossing for this second try, converted by Paddy Jackson, for a 38-3 lead.

The Wallabies pounded the Scottish defensive line and were eventually rewarded for their efforts when Genia leaped over from the base of the ruck to give the home side its first lead of the match at 19-17 after Foley's conversion. "It's a good time for all the players and all the fans".

"It's pretty straightforward. Like, he's one of the best in the air if you kick him over the ball". The Wallabies had a chance to level nearly immediately following a spectacular collision off the restart involving Ned Hanigan but Bernard Foley missed from a handy position.

New Zealand won the title after thumping England 64-17 in the final, while South Africa beat France 37-15 in the third-place match.

The Wallabies answered with a breathtaking second try for Folau, who easily out-jumped Tonks to score off Foley's pinpoint cross-field kick to the right wing.
