South West Rocks' Triston Reilly has continued his try scoring form for the Junior Wallabies as he crossed in the second half of Australia's 36-12 victory over Italy in the Under-20s World Cup opener on Wednesday morning.
The Australian Rugby Sevens product crossed in the 55th minute to extend the Wallabies lead to 22-0.
However, Reilly, who lined up on the wing, was substituted from the field minutes later for precautionary reasons after he rolled his ankle.
The 20-year-old is hopeful he will be healthy to line up for Australia in their next Pool B clash with Ireland on Saturday night.
The Junior Wallabies will then battle England in their final pool game on Thursday June 13.
Ireland earned a 42-26 victory over England their opener.
The country which tops the pool will advance to play in a semi-final, with the winner to advance to the final.
The Junior Wallabies have entered the World Cup as one of the favourites to claim the title after they were victorious in the Under-20s Ocenia Championships in Australia last month.
Reilly played an important role in Australia's victories over Japan and New Zealand while he was rested for their clash with Fiji.
Reilly scored the opening try against Japan and leaped above his opposition New Zealand winger to score against the All Blacks.
