England 'in good shape' for World Cup opener with Fiji

The Rugby World Cup will give England's players "the time of their lives", according to coach Graham Rowntree.

Talking ahead of the opening match against Fiji at Twickenham on Friday, the forwards coach said he was "exceptionally happy" with the squad and insisted they were well prepared.

"We've set them high standards to be in the best shape that they can be and they've done that," Rowntree said. "They've trained exceptionally well."
