Wales became the first team to reach the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals with a record victory over hapless Australia, whose hopes of making the knock-out stages are all but over.

Australia's hopes of making the knockout stages are all but over after the record 40-6 loss..

Defeat heaped pressure on Wallaby head coach Eddie Jones after his side lost for the seventh time in eight Tests since he took over the reins for the second time in January.But the rot had long set in before that, with Australia now having lost 19 of their last 25 international Tests - including a first ever defeat to Italy.

Australia dragged down a rumbling maul and the New Zealand-born Anscombe got off the mark with his first three-pointer.
