Noah Lolesio slotted a penalty with two minutes left as a 14-man Australia edged France 33-30 in a nerve-shredding classic at Lang Park on Saturday to seal the three-test series 2-1.

Australia were a man down after the fifth minute when winger Marika Koroibete was given a red card for a high tackle but the Wallabies rallied brilliantly at Lang Park.

Lolesio was nerveless off the tee in the last few minutes, and he calmly slotted the winner from a sharp angle to extend Australia's winning streak to nine at their Brisbane fortress.

Australia had tries from Tate McDermott, Lolesio and Taniela Tupou, with Baptiste Couilloud, Cameron Woki and Pierre-Louis Barassi crossing for the French.
