Giteau and Smith guide Wallabies to victory over France

7:49 am on 28 June 2009

Australia five-eighth Matt Giteau scored all the points as the Wallabies beat France 22-6 in Sydney.

Giteau bagged Australia's only try and nailed a conversion and five penalties in another flawless display of goalkicking as the Wallabies completed their June internationals unbeaten.

Giteau's haul was just three points shy of Matt Burke's all-time record against France, achieved in the 1999 Rugby World Cup final win in Cardiff.

The well-earned victory completed a perfect four-from-four Tri Nations preparation for the Wallabies following earlier wins over the Barbarians and twin successes against Italy.
