Gloucester's Charlie Sharples scored his first two Test tries as England prepared for the more ferocious challenges to come with a 54-12 victory over Fiji in the first of the Autumn internationals.

The winger, making his first Test start at Twickenham, was joined on the scoresheet by Ugo Monye, flanker Tom Johnson and centre Manu Tuilagi, who touched down twice late on against the tiring Fijians.

Sharples' Gloucester team-mate, Akapusi Qera, was in the Fiji team.
