Wales survived an early wobble against Uruguay at the Millennium Stadium to win their opening Pool A game, 54-9, with a bonus point to boot.

Having spent much of the past 14 days lamenting the loss of Rhys Webb and Leigh Halfpenny to injury, the joy of victory was not only tempered by a lack of accuracy, but the loss to injury of Paul James, Liam Williams and three-try hero Cory Allen.

Coach Warren Gatland will face an anxious 24 hours before learning the extent of the respective injuries to his versatile prop James, first-choice full-back Williams and replacement centre Allen.

Uruguay took the lead inside two minutes courtesy of Felipe Berchesi’s penalty and in the eighth minute it was 6-0, as Berchesi converted a penalty from in front after Wales were caught offside.
