Lote Tuqiri claimed two of Australia's eight tries as Fiji found themselves on the receiving end of a 49-0 demolition job in Perth.

Fijian-born right wing Tuqiri showed several glimpses of his brilliance on his return to the Wallabies side after a month-long fitness programme.

Scott Staniforth also scored two tries as the Wallabies dominated and several fringe players showed enough to give coach John Connolly something to think about ahead of the Tri-Nations and World Cup.

It was far from a full-strength Wallabies side with Matt Giteau, Nathan Sharpe, Rocky Elsom, Mark Gerrard, Wycliff Palu and Guy Shepherdson already in South Africa to prepare for next week's Tri-Nations Test.

The Fijians were missing the majority of their expected World Cup line-up, many of them based overseas but their pack was virtually at full strength and was overwhelmed.

It took just over five-minutes of play for the Wallabies to open their try account, with local Western Force player Staniforth making the most of his rare chance to start.

He was on the end of a pass from Stephen Larkham that set up a big run from Adam Ashley-Cooper, who offloaded for Staniforth to cross.

Julian Huxley struggled with his kicking - he landed just three out of eight conversion attempts - but he crossed for a try at the 16-minute mark.

Staniforth then set up Tuqiri for his first try in his return to the Wallabies side, and the big winger crossed again eight-minutes later.

Just before half-time, Staniforth crossed for his second try just inside the corner flag, capitalising on a great set up pass from Larkham in a four-on-two advantage situation for the Wallabies.

To make things worse for Fiji, it was reduced to 14-men when Henry Qiodravu was sent to the sin-bin just before half-time. That also forced Apisai Turukawa to come on for Apolosi Satala.

Larkham crossed for a try six minutes into the second half before being replaced by Sam Norton-Knight. Almost immediately, Norton-Knight crossed himself, after a good set up from George Gregan, Phil Waugh and Mark Chisholm.

It took 11 minutes for the Wallabies next and final try, from Ashley-Cooper after a clever kick from Drew Mitchell, which ended the scoring.
