Post match reaction

Australia manager Graham Arnold: “It is impossible, we just have a week gap to play France. The players arrive either on Tuesday or on Monday and in less than a week we will go up against the World champions

“So you’ll just take them out for the first game by playing a friendly game two days after they arrive.

“I think we’ve played with each other a lot and the boys just need to be fit and mentally ready and off we go.”
