Australia vs Uruguay LIVE: Rugby World Cup 2019 latest scores, results, fixtures and schedule


Welcome to the Evening Standard’s LIVE coverage of the Rugby World Cup in Japan as Australia aim to bounce back following defeat to Wales last time out. 

That defeat was hardly terminal to the Wallabies’ World Cup hopes but puts them on a collision course with England, who will likely top Pool C.

Australia scored 11 tries in a 65-3 win over Uruguay in the last World Cup and, while the Uruguayans stunned Fiji to open their campaign this time, there’s no real expectation of another major shocker.

Stay tuned to Standard Sport for all the action, results and latest news from Japan…

Australia lead comfortably and have the bonus point in sight, but it’s been a bit of a scrappy affair and they have been plagued by ill-discipline.


43 mins: Uruguay still get the chance to mount one more first-half attack, but the ball is lost forward and Australia come away with possession.


41 mins: NO TRY


Heartbreak for Los Teros as No8 Manuel Diana is deemed to have been offside at the ruck.


40 mins: Uruguay look to have scored on the stroke of half-time after good counter-rucking leads to Inciarte speeding away and dotting down in the right corner.


However, the TMO interjects during the celebrations. He wants to check something…


Petaia celebrates debut score



37 mins: Problems at the scrum are eating up the minutes now as we approach the interval.


35 mins: Australia have conceded eight penalties in this first half, two of which have been punished by yellow cards.


Cheika will no doubt bemoan those decisions, but he can’t be happy with the ill-discipline displayed by his team so far today.


31 mins: A great rip at the breakdown from Hooper secures the turnover for Australia.


They fire the ball out left, with Beale making a good little burst and crucially committing defenders before feeding Petaia.


The teenager then produces a pass inside for centre Kuridrani, who runs in unopposed.


A straightforward kick is hooked right of the posts by Lealiifano.



31 mins: Australia 19-3 Uruguay (Tevita Kuridrani)


29 mins: That was probably the worst of the numerous high tackles we have seen from the Wallabies in this opening 30 minutes.


Australia back to 14 as Salakaia-Loto trudges off for 10 minutes.




29 mins: Lukhan Salakaia-Loto (Australia)


28 mins: Uruguay certainly aren’t lacking commitment here and pour forward on the attack.


More high tackling from Australia – who have been back to a full quota of 15 for a few minutes now – and referee Raynal looks to be going to his pocket once more…


25 mins: A moment debutant Petaia won’t forget in a hurry.


He spins out of an attempted tackle from Silva and uses the momentum to cross the whitewash and touch down after being teed up by a combination of White and Beale.


An easy conversion for Lealiifano.



25 mins: Australia 14-3 Uruguay (Jordan Petaia)


22 mins: Much better from flanker Juan Ormaechea, who gets the turnover after a strong set-piece push.


Berchesi produces a cracking clearing kick to relieve the pressure.


20 mins: The scrum needs to be reset after both front rows start to pop up.


Australia don’t move it away quick enough, but will have another chance after a mistake from Juan Ormaechea.


Coleman sent to the bin



17 mins: Australia apply the pressure despite their numerical disadvantage.


They pass the ball nicely to create openings and captain Hooper is hauled down just short of the line by Tomas Inciarte.


He tries to get over and touch down, but the ball looks to be held up.


After a TMO check, it will be a five-metre scrum for the Wallabies.


Haylett-Petty gives Australia the lead
