Rugby World Cup 2019 quarter-finals Day 1: As it happened

England beat Australia 40-16; New Zealand secure 46-14 win over Ireland

If Day 1 of the Rugby World Cup 2019 quarter-finals has set the standard, then Sunday's action has a lot to live up to.

England booked their place in next week's semi-finals with a 40-16 win over Australia in Oita where they will face two-time defending champions New Zealand, whose 46-14 victory over Ireland does not even begin to tell the story of the All Blacks' dominance.

Sunday's action kicks off with a heavyweight Northern Hemisphere clash between Wales and France (11.15am UAE) before hosts Japan look to continue their fairy-tale journey when they take on South Africa in the 2.15pm kick off.

We'll bring you every tackle and try.
