Elona Vunekece put Fiji ahead shortly before half time, but Ben Westwood quickly struck back for the home nation to ensure that the sides were level at the break.

Ryan Hall led a resurgent England in the second half, scoring two of the team's five tries after the break, helping his side open up a 28-point lead.

Semi Radradra added a late consolation for Fiji but it was too little too late for the team.

England will face either France or Samoa in their last eight match, while Fiji are also in contention for a spot in the quarters depending on results later today.
