    CARDIFF -- Australia demolished Wales 32-8 at the Principality Stadium, but heres who stood out and who had a game to forget. Tyson Ross Jersey .?WalesLeigh Halfpenny - 7Kept Wales in the game almost single handedly with his first-half defensive work. Endured a rare off day from the kicking tee.Alex Cuthbert - 6Was put under pressure defensively but was one of Wales main attacking threats. Should have done better with a potential late two-on-one.Scott Williams - 6A late inclusion and while he struggled defensively, he scored an excellent try as he gathered his own kick.Jamie Roberts - 5An early missed tackle set the tone for a disappointing afternoon. Looked for contact too much with ball in hand.George North - 4Bamboozled by Tevita Kuridranis show-and-go as the Wallabies centre scored a try. Replaced by Hallam Amos in the second half.Dan Biggar - 3 Not a match he will want to watch back. Rightly shown yellow for tackling Dane Haylett-Petty without the ball.Rhys Webb - 6 Had a box kick charged down when Biggar was in the bin but did try to get Wales moving forward when they had the ball.Gethin Jenkins - 3Looked all of his 35 years as Wales were overwhelmed up front and found lacking in defence. His team needed calm leadership as they shipped early points, but Jenkins was unable to impose himself.Ken Owens - 4 Part of a Welsh pack that got pushed around for Stephen Moores opening try and never recovered.Samson Lee - 4Could do nothing to stop Australia gaining the upper hand up front. Replaced early in the second half.Bradley Davies - 5Showed good awareness to intercept Kuridranis first-half offload, but was guilty of conceding a turnover.Luke Charteris - 6Put in a big shift defensively, as he had to, making 12 tackles in all.Dan Lydiate - 5 Was required to work tirelessly defensively as Australia swarmed over Wales, but was unable to stem the tide despite making 12 tackles.Justin Tipuric - 6Led something of a fightback in the second half, taking the game to Australia with ball in hand. But was part of a Wales back row that was overrun at the breakdown.Ross Moriarty - 5Did as much as anyone else to spark the hosts into life with ball in hand but missed two tackles and conceded as many turnovers.Replacements: Scott Baldwin - 6Helped to stem the tide as Wales took the fight to Australia up front.Nicky Smith - 6Wales put up a much better fight up front once Smith came on alongside Baldwin and Francis. Managed five tackles in less than a half.Tomas Francis - 6 Another who came on as Wales fortunes took a slight upward turn.Cory Hill - 5 Came on for Bradley Davies to make his debut, hinted he could have a future at this level.James King - 5Came on late when the game was long gone.Gareth Davies - 5 Another late addition, for the injured Webb, tried to keep Wales on the front foot.Sam Davies - 5Made his debut as a second-half replacement but found the step up hard. Mistake punished by Haylett-Petty late on.Hallam Amos - 7First intervention after coming on was to start the move that resulted in Wales try. Looked dangerous every time he got the ball and could have added a score of his own.AustraliaIsrael Folau - 8Looked dangerous from the first minute whether attacking from deep or on the right wing. His try drought goes on, but it will come.Dane Haylett-Petty - 7Dropped a pass from Foley when it looked easier to score, but made up for that with Australias fifth and final try.Tevita Kuridrani - 8Some lovely touches in midfield in making three clean breaks and took his try exceptionally well.Reece Hodge - 7 Can be happy with a good afternoons work. Denied a first-half try by a spectacular Halfpenny tackle, linked well with Folau to score soon after.Henry Speight - 6 Another Australia back who did everything that was asked of him.Bernard Foley - 9A man of the match performance that was expertly crowned with a wonderful try. Wasnt at his best from the kicking tee, though.Nick Phipps - 7Kept the game ticking over excellently for the Wallabies and was again in tune with Foley outside of him.Scott Sio - 6 Part of a Wallabies pack that turned the screw right from the off.Stephen Moore - 7 Delivered his sides opening try as he punished some slack Welsh defence to burrow over.Sekope Kepu - 6 Sound in the scrum and impressive in the loose. One second-half offload was particularly tasty.Rory Arnold - 6Missed a couple of tackles but contributed to an excellent pack performance.Adam Coleman - 7 Australias pack was considered a weakness not too long ago. As demonstrated by Colemans 15 tackles, it isnt anymore.David Pocock - 6Perhaps not his most blockbusting performance, but in an unfamiliar role was an important cog in an Australian back row that suffocated Wales.Michael Hooper - 7 An early burst hinted at things to come and Hooper was at the heart of a stunning performance from the Wallabies at the breakdown.Lopeti Timani - 6Ensured that Australia remained on top in what was likely to be the games key area, the breakdown.ReplacementsTolu Latu - 5 Didnt have much time to assert himself.James Slipper - 5Another late arrival.Allan Alaalatoa - 5 Came on at a time when Wales were on the front foot but helped keep them out.Rob Simmons - 6 Continued Colemans fine work in the second row.Scott Fardy - 6Impressed having come on for Pocock early in the second half.Nick Frisby - 6 Helped a huge defensive effort as Wales camped on the Wallabies line and picked up where Phipps left off.Quade Cooper - 5Given tree minutes with the game won.Sefa Naivalu - 5Not enough time to show what he can do.
