Fundamental weaaknesses let Fiji down in England clash

England overcame a rusty start to sweep past Fiji 54-12 in the first of their four Twickenham internationals on Saturday as Stuart Lancaster's fledgling side ran in seven tries for a record victory against the outclassed islanders.

After being forced onto the back foot for the opening quarter, England, with their most inexperienced lineup for years, settled and quickly took complete command to lead 25-0 at the break with tries by wingers Charlie Sharples and Ugo Monye and a penalty try.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts
