England beat Fiji 35-11 in Rugby World Cup opener

19 September 2015, 08:57

Twickenham - Mike Brown scored two tries as England beat Fiji 35-11 in the opening World Cup match at Twickenham on Friday.

Brown scored a try in each half as England struggled to overcome the battling Pacific champions before a packed 82,000 crowd.

England also had a penalty try and one for Billy Vunipola in the final minute sealed a victory that gave England maximum bonus points at the top of Pool A. They still have to play Australia and Wales in the so-called Pool of Death.

"All credit to them they put us under a lot of pressure," England captain Chris Robshaw acknowledged after.

"We played into their hands at times," he told ITV television. "It came down to those last couple of seconds and it could be very vital" because of the bonus points gained.

"In the middle phase we just needed to get a couple of points on the board but we will take that. It was a good start for us. We will recover for a while and then we have got a massive two weeks coming up."
