Match Commentary

81'58-15 End of second half
80'Big win for England - they looked very fluent when forty points up in the last twenty. But this was poor by Fiji, who handed their hosts about twenty points, and the winning margin should actually have been much greater.
78'Substitute on - Eramasi Radrodro , Fiji
78'Player substituted - Dominiko Waqaniburotu , Fiji
77'Defensive work-out for England now as Fiji go through a few phases testing the defensive line. Jamie George goes in bravely at the breakdown and earns a penalty for his team.
72'England looking very good now with the likes of Ford and Slade running the show - acres of space all over the park and Danny Care almost in for another try as a result but gets knocked on.
70'58-15 Try - Joe Launchbury , England
69'Joe Launchbury in for his second try of the afternoon, goes over in the right hand corner after nice work by sub Henry Slade. England on for a record score here after nine tries.
66'Player substituted - Courtney Lawes , England
66'Substitute on - Charlie Ewels , England
66'Substitute on - Leroy Atalifo , Fiji
66'Player substituted - Manasa Saulo , Fiji
66'Player substituted - Jonathan Joseph , England
66'Substitute on - Henry Slade , England
65'George Ford with a beautiful cut-out pass off his left hand puts Rokoduguni over in the right-hand corner. No hesitation from the young no.10, made that look easy.
65'53-15 Try - Semesa Rokoduguni , England
62'Great bust by Kyle Sinckler up the middle as England start to dominate possession. The last twenty should see England's bench create havoc against an under-resourced Fijian outfit.
61'Substitute on - Kini Murimurivalu , Fiji
61'Player substituted - Benito Masilevu , Fiji
59'Substitute on - Naulia Dawai , Fiji
59'Player substituted - Akapusi Qera , Fiji
58'Substitute on - Kyle Sinckler , England
58'Player substituted - Dan Cole , England
57'48-15 Conversion - George Ford , England
56'46-15 Try - Jonathan Joseph , England
55'Jonathan Joseph accepts a gift from Josh Matavesi - a long-distance speculator chucked in the direction of the Fijian midfield. Joseph plucks it out of the sky then strolls over for the try.
54'Substitute on - Nemia Soqeta , Fiji
54'Player substituted - Api Ratuniyarawa , Fiji
53'Player substituted - Owen Farrell , England
53'Substitute on - Ben Te'o , England
53'Substitute on - Danny Care , England
53'Player substituted - Ben Youngs , England
52'Farrell gets replaced by Kiwi journeyman Ben Te'o.
52'Substitute on - Talemaitoga Tuapati , Fiji
52'Player substituted - Sunia Koto Vuli , Fiji
52'Substitute on - Jamie George , England
52'Player substituted - Dylan Hartley , England
52'Substitute on - Joe Marler , England
52'Player substituted - Mako Vunipola , England
51'Alex Goode in for a try that should have been scored twenty seconds earlier by Elliot Daly, after Rokoduguni sliced through for a clean break but then failed to give it to Daly on his outside. That kind of profligacy will get punished against good teams - against this Fiji team it just means the try gets delayed.
51'41-15 Conversion - Owen Farrell , England
50'39-15 Try - Alex Goode , England
48'Player substituted - Teimana Harrison , England
48'Substitute on - Nathan Hughes , England
46'England skipper Dylan Hartley goes over in the corner off the back of another lineout drive, but try gets rubbed out for obstruction in the build-up.
44'Excellent try for Fiji after dominating possession at the beginning of the second half. Harrison and Farrell miss tackles for the hosts as the visitors go through the phases, then fullback Talebula slices through diagonally for the score in the right hand corner.
44'34-15 Try - Metuisela Talebula , Fiji
41'Substitute on - Nikola Matawalu , Fiji
41'Player substituted - Serupepeli Vularika , Fiji
41'34-10 Try - Leone Nakarawa , Fiji
41'+234-10 End of first half
40'England are in half-time mode, and Fiji are chucking the ball around as a result. Peceli Yato almost goes over in the left hand corner, then Leone Nakarawa eventually succeeds after some excellent handling by the forwards brings about Fiji's second. Eddie Jones will be unhappy with that. Can see a few 'Englishmen' getting hauled off at half-time.
40'34-10 Start of second half
38'34-5 Penalty goal - Owen Farrell , England
36'England scrum is rewarded with a penalty out in front of the Fijian posts, and Farrell steps up to take the 3 - with the score at 31-5. There are some things about the England rugby team that even Eddie Jones cannot change.
33'Finally Fiji wake up, and after solid recycling work from the forwards on the English line Nadolo gets the ball in space for a one-on-one with Rokoduguni, which results in a try for the visitors.
32'31-5 Try - Nemani Nadolo , Fiji
28'31-0 Conversion - Owen Farrell , England
27'Joe Launchbury with England's fifth - a simple affair off the back of a well-executed line-out drive. Farrell nails the conversion, and he could be looking at a kicking record this afternoon.
27'29-0 Try - Joe Launchbury , England
21'The Bay of Plenty's Teimana Harrison grabs a try that will live long in his memory - he'll still be talking about that after he's moved back to NZ when his rugby career finishes. Fiji unable to live with the tempo of this game - which is not that high. Embarrassment is definitely on the cards here, home pack just powered towards the line and Harrison cashed in.
20'24-0 Try - Teimana Harrison , England
17'First glimpse of the unit that is Nemani Nadolo, carrying what looks like an extra 5 or 6 kgs after a few months in France. Slips a lovely offload out of the back of his hand, but move breaks down as support fails to arrive from Fijian forwards.
14'Semesa Rokoduguni goes over in the right hand corner after nice handling by Farrell and an excellent offload in the tackle by Goode - that's the kind of work a winger wants from his fullback. Fiji are nowhere in this game and currently making England look very good.
13'19-0 Try - Semesa Rokoduguni , England
10'Elliot Daly eases over in the left hand corner after George Ford finds him with a nice miss-pass off the back of broken play from a Ben Youngs box kick that bounces kindly. Move is capped by two Fijians running into each other instead of tackling Daly.
10'14-0 Conversion - Owen Farrell , England
9'12-0 Try - Elliot Daly , England
6'Early signs are bad for Fiji - post-try restart goes out on the full.
6'Player substituted - Campese Ma'afu , Fiji
6'Substitute on - Peni Ravai , Fiji
5'Jonathan Joseph goes over in the left hand corner, after Mako Vunipola gets his team going up the middle of the park with an enormous step off his left foot. Gets recycled slickly and Joseph finishes, but Mako should get the credit for that one. Superb touchline conversion from Owen Farrell.
5'7-0 Conversion - Owen Farrell , England
4'5-0 Try - Jonathan Joseph , England
2'Alex Goode fails to take his first high ball of the game - goes backwards though.
1'Welcome to Twickenham on a dry London afternoon, we have England v Fiji for you, plenty at stake for those like Semesa Rokoduguni and Alex Goode who are returning to Eddie Jones's England team.
1'0-0 Start of first half
