In what may prove to be the match of the tournament, Scotland carried a 14–7 lead at the half and a 21–14 lead with fewer than ten seconds remaining in the match. Australia, undaunted by the pressure, managed to not only score a converted try in the meager seconds remaining, but capitalized on the opportunity for one last restart when Ed Jenkins scored for the famous come-from-behind victory. Australia 28, Scotland 21. After an extremely disappointing showing in Sydney, a loss like this tests the mental toughnes of a team that has not long known the success that Scotland has seen in the past nine months.
