Hooker Tolu Latu scored two tries in the second half to help Australia escape a historic upset by Fiji and win 39-21 on Saturday in the teams’ Rugby World Cup Pool D opener.

The Wallabies, who have never lost to Fiji since 1954 in any rugby union matches, trailed the Flying Fijians for the first 63 minutes when Latu crossed the goal line for the second time, making the score 25-21.
