England got off to winning ways last night with a 35-11 win over Fiji in the opening match of the Rugby World Cup at Twickenham.

Two tries from full-back Mike Brown helped England to secure victory, which coach Stuart Lancaster described as a 'massive relief'.

"It was a big occasion and there were a few nerves," he told the BBC.

"The opening game can be edgy and you have to give a lot of credit to Fiji", said captain Chris Robshaw.

"With the emotion of the opening ceremony there were nerves, but now we're into it."

England face Wales in their next Pool A match at Twickenham on the 26th September.
