Rugby: Australia brush aside Japan 63-30 in Yokohama

"We had moments that were really good and moments that were less effective but we've had a huge week where we've lost players and we've travelled overseas to a new place", Cheika said.

Australia are expecting the halfback combination of Bernard Foley and Will Genia to be available for next week's match against Wales at the Millennium Stadium after they missed the nine-try rout of Japan on Saturday.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika said it was a sign the Welsh would be well prepared, but so would be his side after warming up with a 63-30 thrashing of Japan. We're off to Wales tomorrow, so moving on'.

With Hunt unavailable Cheika had to use Kurtley Beale in the number 15 shirt and give a first Test start at fly-half to three-quarter Reece Hodge.

The last time the two sides met in a test was at the 2007 World Cup, when Australia prevailed 91-3 over Japan in Lyon. "I was very happy with his game".

"We set a goal of starting the tour and putting our best foot forward and I think the boys went a long way to doing that".

The Wallabies scored five unanswered tries in the first half at the venue for the 2019 World Cup final to put the game beyond Japan's reach before crossing for four more after the break. 'They got 30 points on us - and we've got to do better than that - but it was wonderful to play here.

In that context, he was particularly pleased that in the latter stages of the match, even with a big lead on the board and a few unfamiliar combinations on the pitch, the Wallabies had stuck to the gameplan.
