England Crush Fiji

England’s Rugby Union side started their autumn International fixtures with a convincing 54-12 victory over Fiji at Twickenham.

The hosts rounded in seven tries as they demolished a poor Fiji side, with winger Charlie Sharples grabbing a brace.

Toby Flood added 18 points with the boot as the Englishmen scored over 50 points.

The game however was won by the English pack who out scrummed, muscled and mauled their opponents throughout the game.

The English side had a firm pace to play quick ball from and time after time it worked.

Andy Goode was impressive throughout as he took his club from into the England shirt. He was able to break the Fiji line again and again as he set up some great two on ones with Sharples.

Such was England’s dominance, at times it was men against boys, evident by the 35-0 scoreline early in the second half.

Head coach Stuart Lancaster was even able to through on some of his young boys towards the end, who themselves played with a fluidity that has been lacking from England for a while.

It was a great base for the England set up who face Australia next time out, knowing that things will get a lot harder.
