Australia started their morning (Friday night AEST) against Fiji and opened the scoring quickly through Dominique Du Toit before Fiji equalised. 

However, just before halftime Fijian Viniana Riwai received a yellow card and effective saw Australia start the second half with an extra, which they made count. 

Australia scored two tries before Fiji scored to reduce the gap to 24-10 but it was a little late for Fiji as Australia took the win.

The second game of the day against Russia started in similar circumstances to the first as Emilee Cherry gave Australia the early lead before Russia responded quickly. 

However, Russia continued to fight after the score blew out to 24-10 and were able to get within four points of Australia but with time for one more kickoff, Australia gathered the ball to put it into touch to secure a 24-20 win. 

In their last match of the day, Australia faced Canada, a team who they've yet to lose to during this year's World Series and Commonwealth Games. 

Australia got off to the best possible start, scoring three unanswered tries to take a 19-0 lead into halftime. 

They continued this momentum into the second half as Emma Tonegato scored but not long after Canada registered their first points of the game.

Tonegato found herself in the sin bin for a hair pull in the build-up to Canada's try but when she came back on she released Du Toit for a 31-7 lead. 

Canada replied but it wasn't enough as Australia topped their Pool with a 31-14 win. 

It was John Manenti first series event in charge after being named Tim Walsh's replacement last week.

"It was probably the hardest Pool we've had all series," Manenti told Rugby Australia.

"I think we did things well in all three games and improved in things in all three games so the challenge is to keep improving as the tournament goes on and we saw that today.

"I was very pleased we dug in, pull our selves up and did the work," he said.

Australia only needs to make the Cup Final to secure the World Series title for the second time in three seasons.

They now face Fiji in the quarterfinal on Sunday 12:30am.
