Fullback Mike Brown scoring a try during a Pool A match of the 2015 Rugby World Cup between England and Fiji at Twickenham stadium in south west London yesterday.
Hosts England endured an uncomfortable night before overcoming dogged Fiji 35-11 in their Rugby World Cup Pool A opener at Twickenham yesterday.
Seeking a second World Cup triumph, England opened up an 18-8 halftime lead through a penalty try and Mike Brown’s close-range effort while winger Nemani Nadolo took a high crossfield kick in the corner to get Fiji on the scoreboard.
The Pacific Islanders refused to be over-awed in front of 80,000 partisan fans, frustrating a sometimes ragged England with a succession of turnovers.
