Before the game, the Australian Manager, Garry Sunderland, went into the English dressing room with the judge at the lecture of the English team on how to play ball, which should be interpreted during a game that puzzling English players. As the game started, Australia made a perfect start when Hector Gee scored a try in the first minute that Weissel converted to give Australia a 5-0 lead. In the first fight on English prop Joe Thompson was knocked out and was carried off the pitch, and substitutions were not allowed in the day, the teams had to play until the injured players were able to return.

Although Australian to win evened the series at one-all, some Australian authors are critical of the way the game was played on both sides. Journalist Harry Sunderland wrote To the Brisbane courier "I had the pleasure to see 21 of these tests, and I regret to have to admit that if we must learn the tactics to defeat England in football, dabbled on Saturday, Im more likely to change their mind about having a enthusiasm for sports of its type. In four weeks we will have a decisive game for the "ash" and I must candidly admit that I would rather have Australia failed to win the coveted Cup than to repeat some of the things that I saw with the naked eye on Saturday", although Sunderland still acknowledged that animosity during the match, not to endure, as he met many of the players from both teams were drinking together at a nightclub in the evening. "Cynic" to write to the judge said, "This was the most desperate and durable intriguing. Players remained lying as dead on the field, or were taken away to the touch-line for recovery". M. Erskine existing in the Telegraph said, "there Were a few mills bombs and mortars all that was needed at the stage of closure, to complete the impression of the battle". Most were of the opinion that the judge was not up to the standard required for the refereeing in the match at this level.
The British press admitting that it was a difficult game, was much less critical of the way the game was played and put a lot of blame on the referees. English prop Joe Thompson, writing for the Yorkshire evening post said: "there is no doubt that a second test round of 1932 will go down in history as the toughest and most challenging match in the history of the game - the game is full of incidents that are best forgotten.
Rugby League Football in Australia is at a very low ebb at present, and if there is anything to kill our game, its a match of this description, where the game is forgotten, where the referee and linesmen have no control over the game, with players breaking the rules, and doing things which in England mean their immediate dismissal, but is not even careful.
We have a problem in England with the judge, but I would like to say that the weakest of our referees at home Mussolini than with officials. Ive never seen so many cowardly officials of my career".
