England set a record as they thumped Fiji - here's what you need to know

England's drubbing of Fiji 58-15 extended their unbeaten run under coach Eddie Jones to 12 Tests - and set an English record winning margin against the Fijians.

Nine tries were amassed in the second autumn international, with Jonathan Joseph, Semesa Rokoduguni and Joe Launchbury crossing the try line twice and with less than half an hour on the clock England had surged 34-0 ahead.

A passive Fijian defence waved them through at every opportunity, but either side of half-time it became the hosts' turn to crumble as Nemani Nadolo, Leone Nakarawa and Metuisela Talebula plundered soft tries.

Bath Rugby were clearly impressed by the key contributions of their players Semesa Rokoduguni, Jonathan Joseph and George Ford in the win, with Charlie Ewels making his debut off the bench.

Elsewhere one eagle-eyed viewer spotted a hole in Sky's coverage - an extra on in Clive Woodward's name.

Elliot Daly's ninth-minute try was the culmination of a fluid team move that started with Chris Robshaw stripping the ball out of the tackle and ended with the flying Wasp threequarter plotting a graceful line over the whitewash, keeping the ball in both hands to leave Fiji guessing.

Eddie Jones's 12th successive Test victory is the second longest winning streak in England's history, leaving them two short of the 14 games set in 2002-03.

Injustice of the day

Even the most passionate England fan must have felt uneasy as Fiji were put so brutally to the sword.

Fiji produces the most naturally gifted players - such as England's brilliant, Fijian-born Semesa Rokoduguni, pictured above - and the fact it is done against a backdrop of overseas clubs and nations plundering their finest talent highlights the global game's greatest injustice.
