- Re-live only meeting between England and Uruguay ahead of this weekend
- Watch highlights from clash in Brisbane eight years ago
The five tries scored by Josh Lewsey in this, the final Pool C clash for Clive Woodward’s charges, remains a record for England – tied with Rory Underwood’s haul against Fiji in 1989 and the efforts of Douglas Lambert during a win over France way back in 1907.
Following victories over Georgia, South Africa and Samoa, this was a straightforward affair and the eventual Rugby World Cup 2003 champions crossed the whitewash 17 times to set up a 111-13 victory of Los Teros and a quarter-final showdown with Wales.
In front of raucous support at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium, Leicester Tigers flanker Lewis Moody capitalised on a glaring overlap to kick-start England’s evening with less than three minutes on the clock.
Iain Balshaw, Mike Catt, Andy Gomarsall and replacement Jason Robinson added braces, while Dan Luger, Stuart Abbott and Will Greenwood also complemented Lewsey’s exploits in a clinical, fast-paced performance.
Uruguay offered belligerence and strength at the scrum throughout though, and perhaps the biggest cheer of the night came when tighthead prop Pablo Lemoine – now his nation’s head coach – burrowed over.
Where are they now?
This was West’s only start of the tournament and the last of his 21 Test appearances, from the bench in the semi-final triumph over France, would come just a fortnight later.
Immediately upon retirement from playing, he joined the RFU as a specialist forwards coach with England Under 21 before leading the Saxons to Churchill Cup glory alongside Jim Mallinder. The pair then took over at Northampton Saints in 2007, where a highlight of their eight-year tenure has been taking the 2013/4 Premiership title.
Wasps legend Dallaglio would soldier on to Rugby World Cup 2007, bringing his tally of England caps to 85 alongside five domestic league titles and two European crowns as well as three British and Irish Lions tours.
Since hanging up his boots, the burly former back-rower has split his time between charity pursuits and media commitments. He set up the Dallaglio Foundation in 2008 following the death of his mother Eileen and has been a regular television pundit for both BT Sport and ITV, where you can catch him during the current Rugby World Cup.
A tally of 400 points in 32 internationals means only Jonny Wilkinson sits above Grayson on England’s all-time list. After contributing 22 points to this defeat of Uruguay and 43 more over three more Tests in 2004, he retired and joined the coaching team at Northampton Saints, where he stayed until 2012.
Since then, he has worked in consultant kicking roles, both with teams – Worcester Warriors enlisted his help in 2014 – and individuals. Freddie Burns took him on for a series of sessions last season. A perceptive, insightful analyst, Grayson also makes sporadic appearances on BBC Radio Five Live.
