Cool, calm hosts England are confident they will put on a great performance at Twickenham tonight. Captain Chris Robshaw will lead his team out onto the ‘battlefield’ to obtain a convincing victory over the somewhat under-rated 9th ranked team in the world, Fiji.
The host nation have been put through a gruelling training regime for the lead up to this epic 2015 Rugby World Cup and the team are fitter than ever before. The warm-up matches have proved to the rest of the world that England are ready and focused to capitalise and rekindle the spirit of the London 2012 Olympic Games in their search for World Cup success.
George Ford will be kicking in the opening match and high expectations are resting on his shoulders, along with the rest of the team including England’s Mike Brown and Anthony Watson on the offensive and Courtney Lawes creating havoc and putting in some big hits in the pack.
Tonight’s opponents Fiji have a few surprises of their own with some gifted players including wing Nemani Nadolo and centre Niki Goneva – both who possess immense attacking power.
Fiji are no push-over team and tonight’s match is going to be an out and out battle, fuelled with action packed bursts of sprinting, scrummaging and mamouth tackling attempts.
