Wales lost 30-26 to Australia in a bruising Test match Saturday at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff—but it wasn't down to any lack of effort from the home side.

Nowhere was that better exemplified than in Australia's second try, scored by Israel Folau, on the stroke of half-time. 

First George North put in a massive hit on Adam Ashley-Cooper to peg the Wallabies back:

Next was hooker Richard Hibbard just moments afterward, flattening Ben Mowen:

But it wasn't to be, as Australia still somehow managed to get across the line.

Australia fly-half Quade Cooper told the BBC:

Wales are a class outfit. We knew they would keep coming but we stuck to our guns and did what we did for the majority of this tour.

And in fairness to Australia, they did it the hard way.
