ENG 35-11 FIJI (8-0-review)

by Big Joe Shep
An unconvincing start to England's RWC campaign saw difficulties for large periods in gaining momentum against a Fijian side who despite strength in defence, dominating 1 on 1 contact and turnovers, were unstructured and lacked cohesion playing more akin to a 7s side despite a brilliant Nadolo try. Two tries in either half though and a rejuvenated England largely through wholesale changes in the last quarter and Mike Brown’s brilliance saw them scrape home with a BP win 35 - 11.
