3. Winning the chaos battle
Turnover ball, loose kicking, that is where the chaos game starts, the part outside of plans and structures. That is where Fiji are most threatening.
Matawalu fields at the rear, offloads to Niki Goneva or even the Glasgow lock, Leone Nakarawa, who holds the ball like a basketball, drawing in
defenders. But England should not be daunted by what Fiji can do. If England kick smartly into space, with a good kick-chase, then they will reap their own rewards.
England should not be afraid of doing to Fiji what Fiji are supposed to be doing to England – running back at them, creating their own chaos. Fiji’s defence will not be as structured as England’s, there will
be props or second rows stuck out on the fringes, and England have got to spot that and attack there.
Fiji have got nothing to lose coming to Twickenham. This is the perfect chance for them to show the world what they are about. They will want chaos. England have to contend with that, mix up their game, be masters of the chaos.
