England crushed by fiery Fiji

England A were unable to round off their mainly successful tour on a high note and were soundly beaten 59-25 by Fiji at the National Stadium in Suva. The hosts, concentrating on rebuilding after their failure to reach the World Cup, introduced eight new caps. Their pack pounced on any loose ball and quickly fed a talented backline which, led by the running full-back Filipe Rayasi, repeatedly punched holes in the England defence. Chris Sheasby scored two tries and Rory Jenkins also went over for England, with Paul Hull kicking two conversions and Paul Grayson two penalties.
