The Wallabies may have come out on top, but it was hardly an inspiring performance.

That’s the verdict from Roar readers following Saturday’s 32-23 win over the Brave Blossoms.

As is customary around here, it was up to the audience to provide the player ratings post-match and, having come off a four-match winning streak to conclude the Rugby Championship – the bar has been raised.

Flashy, champagne rugby looked nice at times, but it’s fair to say the Wallabies underperformed and will want to play a lot better when their European tour kicks off shortly.

Only one player emerged with an average score of above seven out of ten – that was number eight Rob Valetini with 7.16.

There was a decent gap between him and the second-place finisher in Jordan Petaia – who came off the bench very early to replace an injured Reece Hodge and score 6.49.

Rounding out the podium was the ever-reliable skipper, Michael Hooper, with 6.44.
