- Pacific islanders boosted by wins against Australia and England
- We can put tier-one nations ‘to sleep’, claims forwards coach
Fiji are preparing to “shock the world” against England in Sunday’s World Cup quarter-final with the Pacific islanders vowing to deliver the knockout blow and put Steve Borthwick’s side “to sleep”.
The match in Marseille will be only the third time Fiji have contested a World Cup quarter-final. But after a valiant showing in defeat by Wales and an impressive victory against Australia, they finished their pool stage campaign with a nervous win over Georgia and a shock loss to Portugal.
