Australia lurched into the World Cup quarter-finals with an unconvincing 27-8 bonus-point victory over Georgia in their Pool D clash on Friday amid swirling winds and rain at Shizuoka Stadium as Typhoon Hagibis started to make its presence felt.

Australia had already qualified for the quarter-finals before their first clash with Georgia and hoped to stamp their authority on the game and send a message to the rest of the tournament as they headed into the knockout phase.

They dominated possession, territory and the set piece but ran into an impressive defence from Georgia, who made 201 tackles, and were only able to pull away in the final quarter with tries from Marika Koroibete, Jack Dempsey and Will Genia.

The typhoon is expected to lash central and eastern Honshu on Saturday, which has led to the cancellation of the games between England and France in Yokohama and New Zealand and Italy in Toyota City.
