We’ve asked you to rate each Wallabies player out of 10 after their audacious 33-30 win over France over the weekend, in which they claimed the three-Test series.

His praises have been sung all week, especially by local expert Nick Bishop, so it’s no surprise that skipper Michael Hooper also comes out on top in the polls.

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 crept north of eight – 8.03 – with another excellent cameo off the bench, while Darcy Swain’s 7.72 was good enough for bronze.

Will Genia once again called Michael Hooper his man of the match in conversation with the roar.

“You are no longer allowed to pass the skipper. He was damn good. His pace of work, his will to go on and be involved and have an impact on the game.

“He makes such a difference to the team with his leadership and composure, and when you look at someone like that he just keeps going. In my experience, because I’ve 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 too,” he said.
