England coach Stuart Lancaster said it was a “massive relief” to secure a bonus-point victory over Fiji in the opening World Cup match.
Billy Vunipola muscled over for a late try to give
England a 35-11 win
in a disjointed display at Twickenham.
“It was a big occasion and there were a few nerves. We got a good lead but didn’t put the nail in the coffin,” Lancaster told BBC Radio 5 live.
“We had to work hard and that last try late in the game was a massive relief.”
Two tries from full-back Mike Brown and the impact of a superior set of replacements saw Lancaster’s men home.
However, had Fiji been more clinical with their kicking the scoreline would have been closer.
