WALLABIES coach Michael Cheika will have some selection headaches ahead of the crucial World Cup clash against England on Sunday morning after his second team ran in 11 tries in a 65-3 romp over Uruguay.
After resting flankers David Pocock and Michael Hooper, replacement Sean McMahon, 21, turned in a man-of-the match display with two tries, 66m gained and nine tackles at a 90% success rate.
Winger Drew Mitchell also put forward a strong case with a double which made him Australia's leading World Cup try-scorer with 12, three behind the all-time record set by All Black Jonah Lomu.
"There are a few players that definitely put their hand up for selection," Cheika said. "It's getting a bit ridiculous because every man-of-the-match we have is a seven or eight."
A hamstring injury to veteran No.8 Wycliff Palu may have eased one dilemma, while second-rower Will Skelton also injured his shoulder but could be available for selection against England which must win the game to keep its quarter-final hopes alive.
England has several of its own injury concerns, lock Courtney Lawes (knee), No.8 Billy Vunipola (knee), scrum- half Ben Youngs (ankle) and inside centre Jonathan Joseph (pectoral) under injury clouds.
In other results, Ireland beat Romania 44-10 in front a Cup record crowd of 89,267 at Wembley, and Scotland came from behind to beat the US 39-16.
