Australia suffered a serious looking injury to in-form second-row Luke Lewis as they defeated Fiji in St Helens.

Lewis slid into an advertising hoarding and was led to the dressing rooms in some discomfort with initial reports suggesting that he had suffered a dislocated shoulder.

Moments earlier Lewis had finished off another smart move from fullback Greg Inglis to score a 67th minute try which was converted by man of the match Johnathan Thurston.

Australia had gone into the break 16-2 ahead thanks to first half tries from Josh Papalii, Darius Boyd and Michael Jennings.

Josh Morris – who had a try disallowed early on – was over on 45 minutes after a crossfield kick from Daly Cherry-Evans.

The scrum-half then  backed up a break from James Tamou for a try of his own.

The Fijians were unlucky when Apisai Koroisau was centimetres from scoring midway through the second half.
