A lack of precision in kicking hurt Australia’s chances in the first half, as they trailed 16-5 at halftime. France capitalized on a numerical advantage following a yellow card for Wallabies winger Suliasi Vunivalu in the second half.
The French scored four tries and conceded three. Australia’s young flyhalf Carter Gordon missed two penalties and converted just one try.

“In terms of what we want to do for the World Cup, particularly our first game, we probably did a lot of good things but we’ve got to get better at converting territory into points,” Jones said. “We had 63% of territory in the first half and behind 16-5 at halftime. So a good team, that doesn’t happen to. We’re not a bad team, but we’re not a good team yet.
“We’re going through the process of becoming a good team. So we’ve just got to keep believing, keep working hard, and it’ll come.”
Antoine Dupont conceded a penalty for offside, but Gordon missed his penalty in windy conditions.
As the Wallabies attacked into the French quarter, Rob Valetini conceded a penalty.
