Australia will hope to put a disappointing tournament so far behind them as they take on Portugal in Pool C.

For the first time, the Wallabies are set to go out of the Rugby World Cup before the knockout rounds begin – if Fiji secure even a losing bonus point against Portugal next weekend, Eddie Jones’s side will be out.

Ahead of a crucial period for Australian rugby with a home tournament in four years’ time, the rebuilding begins now with a bonus point victory a must against a Portuguese side that have impressed mightily in France.

Having pushed Wales far closer than most expected, Patrice Lagisquet’s squad narrowly missed out on an historic victory against Georgia and will be confident that they can test their opponents in Saint-Etienne.

Could they even deepen the Wallabies‘ woe?

Portugal have a knock on before the offside from Australia and another chance to capitalise is lost.

The review shows the foul was three or four metres away, so there is no penalty try.

But Portugal have another opportunity here with a line out just metres from the line.

TMO: Australia 29-12 Portugal LIVE: 59 minutes

Looking at a clear loss of control as the ball crosses the try line, so that try by Tadjer could be ruled out.

That would be a heavy blow to Portugal.

Yet another penalty to Portugal, and the captain is getting a talking to. The next one will receive a yellow.

Australia 29-7 Portugal LIVE: 58 minutes

Primary contact on the chest so no yellow or red card, but it must have been a worrying moment for Foketi and from the replays it could be considered more shoulder than chest. A close call.

Australia have been giving away a few silly penalties here, the latest one for a sloppy late tackle without arms.

Another Portuguese attack comes to an end.

The boos rang out against the touchline official, with the crowd believing Koroibete carried the ball over the line, but it was the right call.

Just a few frustrations from the majority of the crowd who are decked out in red.
