Fiji’s historic 30-23 win at Twickenham stunned the world and has raised a lot of eyebrows in the rugby fraternity.  

Former England 7s rep, Rob Vickerman posted on his Twitter page saying “As a self-declared member of the Fijian fan club, this is absolutely huge for the island, team and fans of @fijirugby. A few Q’s for England, but their focus will be on a few weeks, not now. What a moment for the brilliant people of Fiji!”

Fiji will leave for Bordeaux, France on Thursday.

They’ll be based at Bordeaux before taking on Wales on 11th September in its first World Cup match.
