Jarryd Hayne and Brett Morris scored four tries each to thump the USA 62-0 and propel Australia into the World Cup semi-finals.

It was the first time in World Cup history that two players scored four tries in a game and only the seventh and eighth occasions anyone has touched down four times individually in the event.

England’s Keith Fielding was the first man to do it back in 1975. Since then, Australians Dale Shearer (1986), Michael O’Connor (1988), Mat Rogers (2000), and Wendell Sailor (2000) have also completed the feat.

New Zealand’s Manu Vatuvei was the last man to do it back in the 2008 semi-finals when he single-handedly sent England home.
