The only criticism I had was the choice of colours. Why didn't Hornets wear their home kit?

 

Didn't realy matter about the shirts, you could tell the Fiji boys, they were all a minimum foot taller two stone heavier and ran like olympic gold medal winners. I'm sure you will agree S10C they were a pleasure to watch.

As an Oldham fan there was also the added pleasure of seeing Hornets nilled. On a more serious note though, it was an eye opener, and with England's performance against Italy, I think there is more than just cause for concern. Fiji demonstrated a willingness to work to prevent Hornets getting over the line, their support play was excellent, and they seemed to have strike potential from anywhere on the field. I also do not think they got anywhere near top gear.
