Australia beat PNG at RLWC

6:17 am on 10 November 2008

The Australian rugby league side has beaten Papua New Guinea 46-6 in their World Cup match in Townsville.

David Williams launched his Test career with a hat-trick of tries.

Australia led 22-nil at halftime.

The scoreline will look good for PNG to take home after they lost 82-nil the last time they played Australia in the 2000 World Cup.

Tonight Fiji play Ireland with the winner going through to a semi-final with Australia.

New Zealand play England in the other semi-final next weekend.
