Australia ease to win against Ireland

Tournament favourites Australia warmed up for the knockout phase of the Rugby League World Cup with a comfortable win against Ireland in Limerick.

Kangaroos winger Jarryd Hayne opened the scoring after less than 90 seconds before his side ran in four more tries for a 26-0 half-time advantage.

Another four unanswered tries after the break ensured Australia finished as Group A winners ahead of England.

They will face the United States in the last eight on 16 November in Wrexham.
