We asked and you answered - which of Matt Giteau's 99 Tests has been his best?

Giteau has been in almost career-best form since returning to the Wallabies fold and you judged his most recent outing as his best.

Australia v Wales October 11, 2015 (35 per cent)

Matt Giteau’s form since returning to the Wallabies this season has been impressive but few matches in his career match up to his effort against Wales.

The inside centre laid six tackles in the win over Wales as the Wallabies found themselves two men down for eight minutes in the second half.

Subbed off in the 67th minute, the stats don’t truly tell the story of Giteau’s gutsy performance in Australia’s final pool match.

Giteau injured his sternum in Australia’s win over England a week earlier and played through pain to make an impact against Wales, receiving treatment from a trainer partway through the game.

The injuries were enough to put him under in doubt for the side’s quarter-final in the immediate aftermath of the match.
