Hosts still need to sort out their set-piece

The Daily Telegraph - Rugby World Cup - - Sport Rugby World Cup 2015 -

Eng­land’s set-piece prob­lems re-emerged against the pow­er­ful and ath­letic Fiji side. Alarm­ingly, Eng­land were twice driven off their own ball at scrum time, with Fiji scor­ing a try by Nadolo from the sec­ond con­ces­sion. It was only the in­ter­ven­tion of the Tele­vi­sion Match Of­fi­cial that ruled out a sec­ond try when Nikola Matawalu had been able to run 40 me­tres to the line af­ter Eng­land’s back row had been sucked in by a dom­i­nant right­shoul­der Fi­jian scrum. Eng­land’s line-out also wob­bled un­til Tom Wood took con­trol.
