We asked you to rate every Wallabies player out of 10 after their brave 33-30 win over France on the weekend, which saw them claim the three-Test series.

His praises have been sung all week, especially by resident expert Nick Bishop, so it’s no surprise to see skipper Michael Hooper come out well on top in the votes too.

He was the only member of the run-on XV to average north of eight out of ten – and he did it emphatically, scoring 8.61.

Taniela Tupou also creeped north of eight – 8.03 – with another excellent cameo off the bench, while Darcy Swain’s 7.72 at lock was good enough for bronze.

Will Genia, again, named Michael Hooper his man of the match speaking to The Roar.

“You can’t go past the skipper again. He was bloody good. His work-rate, his appetite to keep going and being involved and have an impact on the game.


“He makes such a difference to the team with his leadership and composure, and you look at someone like that and he just keeps going and going. In my experience, having played with him and I’m sure it’s the same with the others, it just inspires you to want to go that extra distance as well,” he said.

Here are the full Wallabies player ratings from third Test against France.
