  • England 54 Fiji 10.

  • Tuilagi drives England into touch and that's full-time. Lots of positives for the hosts in Goode, Sharples and Tuilagi and Fiji should take heart from the end. One-sided, but good preparation for England ahead of Australia.

  • TRY, FIJI, KALOU! 54-12. Knock on from England at the restart and Fiji now with a chance, Goneva slicing through the gap. Penalty to Fiji who tap and go, Qera going close. Kalou burrows over for the consolation.

  • TRY, ENGLAND, TUILAGI! 54-5. England lineout ten metres from the line. Ben Youngs on the burst, Tuilagi breaks some tackles and he gets his second try.

  • Scrum against the head from England and they go wide to the right. Cute offload from Tuilagi to Barritt. Wood goes close and Brown burrows over the top for the score but is judged to have lost control. Scrum to Fiji.

  • Penalty at the breakdown and Farrell finds the corner. England set up the maul and drive towards the line, stopping just short. Not coming back, scrum to Fiji.

  • TRY, ENGLAND, TUILAGI! 47-5. Sharples with another fine burst, taking England into the 22. Barritt blasts through some tackles, Mike Brown nearly getting caught but the ball comes back. Tuilagi in the corner, try.

  • Multiple penalties from Fiji at the scrum. Youngs to Sharples who cuts inside, offloads back to Youngs who looks to have scored. Upstairs to the TMO, but the ball is dropped. Scrum to Fiji.

  • David Paice on for Tom Youngs, good debut for the Leicester star.

  • Waldrom breaks through, looks for the pass but the ball flies forward and Fiji have a scrum in their own 22.

  • Dan Cole replaced by Dave Wilson.

  • Break from Brown who is now on the wing, but Fiji turn the ball over and wearily clear. Hard afternoon for the islanders and England in control now.

  • Sharples chases a high one and offloads to Launchbury, flying down the right. Left to Tuilagi but he's tackles as the pass goes loose to Brown.

  • Ben Youngs now on to join brother Tom, Care off. Owen Farrell on for Flood.

  • TRY, ENGLAND, SHARPLES! 42-5. A second for the Gloucester winger, nice wide pass from Flood and England had too many numbers down the left.

  • Flood shanks the resulting restart but Fiji knock on at the scrum. Penalty again to England and Flood finds touch in the 22.

  • TRY, FIJI, MATAWALU! 35-5. Care taps from a penalty and Monye finds space but the pass is poor, and Fiji break. Goode does his best but great footwork from Matawalu gets the ball over the try line and he pounces, fine finish.

  • Care probes a kick forward and Sharples pace nearly carries him on to it, Talebula winning the ball and moving up field. Fiji forced into touch.

  • Joe Launchbury makes his debut, on for Tom Palmer.

  • TRY, ENGLAND, JOHNSON! 35-0. England look to drive but the control is off and Fiji clear. Quick lineout from Sharples gets England going once more. Wide left to Monye who steps inside. Vunipola crashes up, Goode jinks, Robshaw to Johnson, try.
