Taqele Naiyaravoro made a memorable debut for the Wallabies by scoring a try in the 47-10 victory over United States of America.
It was the last hit-out for Australia before its World Cup opening match against the Vodafone Flying Fijians on September 23rd.
Naiyaravoro came off the reserves bench in the 71st minute and scored the try with a minute left on the clock.
The Wallabies outscored the hosts in Chicago by 7 tries to one with flyhalf Bernard Foley successful with 6 conversions.
Henry Speight featured at outside centre for the Wallabies, while another Fijian player, Andrew Durutalo played at blindside flanker for the Eagles.
Meanwhile, one of Fiji’s pool opponents in the World Cup, Wales, are sweating on the availability of injured stars, Leigh Halfpenny and Rhys Webb.
The duo were both stretchered off the field during Wales 23-19 win over Italy this morning and medical scans tomorrow will determine whether they will feature in the World Cup.
