The Rugby World Cup 2015 is finally upon us and the hosts England take on Fiji in the first match at Twickenham. Here is how to catch all the action
England have named an unchanged team from the one that beat Ireland 21-13 in the final warm up match on September 5, with Geoff Parling starting alongside Courtney Lawes in the second row and man of the moment Sam Burgess named among the replacements.
Fiji coach John McKee has named three British-based players in his starting XV, with dangerous utility back Vereniki Goneva (Leicester Tigers) starting in the centres. New Bath scrum-half Niko Matawalu also starts, as does Glasgow lock Leone Nakarawa.
ITV won the rights to show every World Cup game, with their coverage of England v Fiji starting at 7.25pm. If you won’t be in front of a television, BBC Radio should be your first point of all for live audio coverage.
