Our attention now turns to Tokyo for England’s game with Argentina and you can follow live text updates from Tokyo of that one
When Australia positions well they’re one of the best in the world. It’s about the consistency. They haven’t started well in the previous two games. This game was better in terms of the scoreline but two yellow cards will be very disappointing, the amount of mistakes in contact will be disappointing as well.
Those are individual errors they can fix and tidy up. They need to because against better opposition, in a possible quarter-final against England and beyond those are going to be the incidents that make the difference, so there’s a bit of work for Australia to do.
The crowd were willing them to get over the line. You can see how much that means to the crowd, the support and the players as well. They’re almost too exhausted to celebrate!
Persistence pays off and there is sheer delight in the stands. Manuel Diana eventually muscles over from close range and Uruguay have the try their first half performance deserved. Felipe Berchesi adds the extras and they’re into double figures.
Uruguay retain the line-out and roll through the phases close to the line. The crowd are getting behind now them as they attempt to cross the tryline.
They win another penalty for side entry by the Wallabies and the ball is popped into touch for a line-out. Here comes the heave!
