Fiji captain Akapusi Qera is intent on causing an upset in their World Cup opener against England at Twickenham on Friday evening.
“We’ve been picked for this squad for a reason, and that reason is to play against England and do all we can to topple them on their home ground,” said the back-row forward.
“This World Cup in England is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: we’re not going to let it pass us by. Friday night is a massive, massive opportunity for Fiji.”

Snubbed fly-half Danny Cipriani says he will not change his habits despite being disappointed after being left out by England for November’s Tests.
The 26-year-old, who has performed well for the Sharks this season and also impressed as a replacement against New Zealand in June, was not included in Stuart Lancaster’s 33-man squad.
