The 1971 Australia rugby union tour of France was a series of eight matches played by the Australia national rugby union team (the "Wallabies") in France in November 1971. The Wallabies drew the series, winning the first test of the two against the France and losing the second. They also played six games against teams described as French Selections (or Regional XVs), of which they won three and lost three.
The Wallaby squad was captained by Greg Davis described by Howell as "a leader of men who believed a leader should lead....a single minded flanker who gave no quarter and asked for none". Davis was making his sixth overseas tour with the Wallabies and his second as captain.
