London - Australia's Drew Mitchell entered the race for the Rugby World Cup try-scoring record with a brace against Scotland in their 35-34 quarter-final victory at Twickenham on Sunday.

Mitchell dotted down twice to bring his tally in World Cups to 14 - a single try shy of current joint leaders, New Zealand great Jonah Lomu and Springbok Bryan Habana.

Mitchell will have a chance to increase his tally in the semi-finals against Argentina (Sunday, October 25 at 17:00 SA time), while Habana will get his opportunity a day earlier against the All Blacks, also at Twickenham (17:00 SA time).
