The Wallabies ever reliable utility player Adam Ashley-Cooper is threatening the leaders in The Growden Medal following another assured performance during their dramatic quarter-final win over Scotland.

Ashley-Cooper rarely plays a bad game for the Wallabies, and his tenacity and enthusiasm were crucial in Australia securing a controversial one-point victory.

Matt Giteau had another excellent performance, winning the official man-of-the-match award.

David Pocock, sidelined from the Scotland game through injury, remains the leader.

Australia did everything they could to lose
