- England knock out Fiji to reach the last four of World Cup
- Owen Farrell booed before quarter-final in Marseille
Steve Borthwick said “I don’t care what people think of us” after England booked their place in the Rugby World Cup semi-finals – Owen Farrell answering his critics with two crucial late kicks to defeat Fiji, having been roundly booed by spectators before the match.
England survived a considerable scare to overcome Fiji and are two wins away from lifting the trophy. While they will go into the last four as outsiders, Borthwick pointedly gave short shrift when asked if his side head to Paris as underdogs.
