The first game is going to be an important one for both the sides – England as well as Fiji. They both are in Group A which is believed to be the most competitive group of this season. Other teams of this pool are Australia, Wales, and Uruguay who will battle to fix their place in the next round.

Rugby legend Jonny Wilkinson has warned his former teammates to focus only on the game and not on the opening ceremony celebrations. He was the captain of the England team in the 2011 world cup. George Ford and Owen Farrell have made their place in the team with extra efforts. Ford may lead the team against Fiji.

However, the English shouldn’t consider Fiji an easy opponent. But if the England team showed what they did in the six nations, then they will easily teak care of the business without any problem.
