Former New Zealand winger Jonah Lomu has warned England that Fiji will feel no fear in Friday’s World Cup opener and can cause an upset at Twickenham.

England launch their World Cup campaign against the Pacific Islanders, knowing victory will be essential to their hopes of escaping Pool A, where Wales and Australia are also fighting to make the quarter-finals.

Fiji recorded a shock win against Wales in 2007 to reach the last eight and Lomu, who scored 15 tries across the 1995 and 1999 World Cups, believes they can defy the odds again.

‘They have an upset in them,’ Lomu told reporters. ‘Somewhere along the line they’re going to knock over a big team and it could be England.

‘The majority of their players, 80 per cent of them or so, they play in Europe.

‘They’re not intimidated in terms of playing against these guys because they play against them week in week out. They are a threat.”
