|2019 Rugby World Cup Pool D: Australia v Uruguay|
|Australia (19) 45|
|Tries:Haylett-Petty 2, Petaia, Kuridrani 2, Genia, SlipperCons:Lealiifano 5|
|Uruguay (3) 10|
Australia recovered from defeat by Wales to beat Uruguay 45-10 on Saturday and move top of World Cup Pool D.
The Wallabies lost an enthralling clash 29-25 to Warren Gatland’s side in Tokyo last week, having also suffered a scare in their opening win over Fiji.
First-half sin-bins for Adam Coleman and Lukhan Salakaia-Loto contributed to another sloppy start before Australia hit their straps in Oita.
Teenage wing Jordan Petaia was among the scorers with a try on his debut.
Dane Haylett-Petty and Tevita Kuridrani also crossed in the first half and Kuridrani added his second after the break to make sure Australia earned a bonus point.
Will Genia and James Slipper – who scored his first international try in his 94th Test for Australia – also touched down and Haylett-Petty crossed for his second of the match, before Manuel Diana scored a consolation try for Uruguay.
Australia run in seven tries
Australia have not suffered successive defeats at a World Cup since losing to France and Wales in 1987 and you could have got odds of 200-1 for Uruguay to pull off a shock in Oita.
