Despite scoring a hat-trick of tries on his Australia debut, David Williams has been omitted from the side named for Sunday's World Cup semi-final against Fiji.

The winger touched down three times in the Kangaroos' 46-6 win against Papua New Guinea at the weekend, but will make way for the returning Brent Tate.

In naming his 13, coach Ricky Stuart has largely reverted to the side which thrashed England 52-4 in their pool match the previous weekend.

The only change comes on the bench, where veteran second rower Craig Fitzgibbon replaces Josh Perry.

Australia: Billy Slater; Joel Monaghan, Greg Inglis, Israel Folau, Brent Tate; Darren Lockyer (captain), Johnathan Thurston; Petero Civoniceva, Cameron Smith, Steve Price; Glenn Stewart, Anthony Laffranchi, Paul Gallen.
Replacements: Karmichael Hunt, Craig Fitzgibbon, Anthony Tupou, Brent Kite.

Fiji: Jarryd Hayne; Semi Tadulala, Wes Naiqama (captain), Daryl Millard, Akuila Uate; Alipate Noilea, Aaron Groom; Osea Sadrau, Waisele Sukanaveita, Ilisoni Vonomateiratu, Ashton Sims, Sevanaia Koroi, Jason Bukuya.
Replacements: James Storer, Nick Bradley-Qalilawa, Jone Macilai, Semisi Tora, Vula Naqau, Jone Wesele (two to be omitted).
