Too little, much too late from Fiji. England put on a quick fire few tries in the second half, to race away with the game. This win means they finish second in their Group. Fiji should qualify also, provided Australia beat Ireland later this afternoon.

England Lions 34-12

TRY FIJI
Scored by Sisa Waqa. Conversion attempt by Wes Naiqama successful.

And it leads to points for Fiji - Sisa Waqa diving over in the corner. Naiqama kicks, and it's lovely - straight over the posts.

England penalised now for holding down the tackler. Fiji on the attack...

England Lions 34-6

Fiji almost scoring now, as Naiqama grubbers through looking for a regather. Tomkins cleans it up.

England still looking dangerous here. Chase almost puts Hall into space, but he can't handle the pass.

TRY ENGLAND LIONS
Scored by Ryan Hall. Conversion attempt by Kevin Sinfield unsuccessful.

Costly mistake from Sims - Tomkins puts on a simple draw/pass play, and Hall gets his second. Sinfield sends the kick wide of the post.

England Lions 34-6

55

We've got some frustration from Fiji - Korbin Sims pushes Ferres and a scuffle breaks out. England get the penalty.

England Lions 30-6

53

Who else wants a try? George Burgess takes an offload from Hill, before giving it to Burrow. He steps 2 would be defenders, and plants the ball for a try. Sinfield converts, unsurprisingly.

Scored by Ryan Hall. Conversion attempt by Kevin Sinfield successful.

And this time it's given. Hall crosses out wide, just before being bundled into touch. Sinfield again adds the extra two, this time from right on the white paint of the sideline.

Video Referee has been busy this afternoon. We're again checking on a possible England try.

TRY ENGLAND LIONS
Scored by Brett Ferres. Conversion attempt by Kevin Sinfield successful.

Game starting to open up now. Chase throws a very flat pass to Ferres, who runs straight through a gap. Sinfield converts from the left of field.

TRY ENGLAND LIONS
Scored by Sam Burgess. Conversion attempt by Kevin Sinfield successful.

Not the start Fiji would have wanted. They let the ball bounce from the kick off, and Sam Burgess skittles players out of the way as he crashes over for a try. Sinfield converts.

England Lions 12-6

40

All locked up here at half time. England had the lion's share (bad pun, I know) of possession in the first half, but couldn't convert it into points. Fiji will not be unhappy with where they are, considering the pressure they were under at times in the first 40.

TRY ENGLAND LIONS
Scored by Ben Westwood. Conversion attempt by Kevin Sinfield successful.

Only minutes after the previous try, England hit back. Sustained pressure on the Fiji line sees Westwood cross for a try. Sinfield adds the extras.

TRY FIJI
Scored by Eloni Vunakece. Conversion attempt by Wes Naiqama successful.

We have our first try of the game, scored by Vunakece just left of the posts. Naiqama has no trouble with the kick.

And we're going to the video referee again - a possible try to Millard for Fiji this time, after Tomkins makes a mess of a pickup behind the tryline.

It's a cold day here in Hull for this clash between England and Fiji. There's a big crowd here for what should be an entertaining match.
