Fiji say their attention will not deviate from their World Cup opener against Wales despite making history against England at Twickenham.

Fiji celebrated a first win against England in front of Wales head coach Warren Gatland, with the two sides facing off in Bordeaux on 10 September.

“We have been preparing for 10 September, that has been our goal since the start,” said Fiji coach Simon Raiwalui.

“Their [Wales] coaching staff was here watching so they are obviously preparing for that match and we will be preparing for it as well.

“They will look at some of the things we did and target some of those areas. I think it’s going to be a great match and we have been looking forward to it.”

Fiji had recorded wins over Samoa, Tonga and Japan in the build-up to the World Cup before their record win over England, with a defeat to France thrown into the mix.

Fiji’s all-court performance will have shaken their Pool C rivals Wales and Australia as they fully justified the growing expectations that they will claim some major scalps at the World Cup.

“We don’t get to play at Twickenham too often so this was a great honour for us. It’s huge to get the victory and I’m very proud of the boys,” head coach Simon Raiwalui said.

“I wouldn’t say we were comfortable because it was a tough match. We’ve made a huge progression with our rugby.”

Raiwalui believes there is more to come from his Fiji side who will also face Australia, Portugal and Georgia in the pool.

“It was not the complete performance, there is more to come from us,” added Raiwalui. “We are still making a couple of mistakes we need to work on but I think we have made huge progression in the two months we have been together. It has been a good journey.”

England prop Joe Marler faces a nervous wait to see if his tackle on Fiji’s Albert Tuisue will be examined by the citing officer.

At the time of his tackle on Tuisue, referee Jaco Peyper informed Fiji captain Waisea Nayacalevu that the officials could not find any angles which clearly showed contact to the head, so play continued. But more footage may emerge, The Telegraph reports.

Nayacalevu shook his head when the incident was discussed during Fiji’s post-match press conference, while Fiji head coach Simon Raiwalui added: “It was a clear high shot and direct to the head.”
