Australia dazzled in the bright Villa Park sunshine to run in 11 tries in an emphatic 65-3 victory over Uruguay in Pool A on Sunday.

The Wallabies, demonstrating their undoubted strength with the ball in hand, sealed a vital bonus point after claiming five first-half tries, despite Uruguay surprisingly shading the possession during the opening 40 minutes.

There were a brace of tries for wing Drew Mitchell (pictured above, scoring his team’s seventh), and all-purpose flankers Ben McCalman and Sean McMahon.

Fly-half Quade Cooper, despite mislaying his kicking boots – he landed only five conversions – pulled the strings with his usual flair and vision for the Wallabies, who made 14 changes from the team that defeated Fiji 28-13 in their RWC 2015 opener.

They were 12-0 up inside 10 minutes when McMahon burst over from a rolling maul close to the Uruguay line to touch down, before Cooper teed up wing Joe Tomane for a superbly executed try.
