A powerful second-half display saw Germany triumph over a side who were ranked eight places higher than them in the World Rugby Rankings going into the match.

Canada also made a winning start to the tournament as they bid to preserve their record of having appeared in every Rugby World Cup, scoring 10 tries in a 65-19 defeat of Kenya in which winger DTH van der Merwe scored the first hat-trick of his test career.

The action continues next Saturday, when Hong Kong will look to bounce back against Kenya at 13:00 local time (GMT+1) and Canada tackle Germany in a battle of the unbeaten teams at 16:00.
