GIFs: Some Fijian Magic Brings Them Back Into The Game
By Conor O'Leary Updated

It wasn't going well for Fiji in the opening game of the Rugby World Cup. From Ben Volavola's opening knock on, they've looked nervous and allowed England into a 15-0 lead.

Once former Glasgow scrumhalf Niko Matawalu came back from the sinbin, he has inspired their introduction into the game.

His Peter Stringer moment from the scrum at the halfway line almost brought one of the best World Cup tries of all time:

But the TMO intervened with his fourth involvement of the game after less than 30 minutes:

But from the resulting scrum, Fiji pushed England off the ball, and everybody's new favourite Fijian Nemani Nadolo used his 6'8'' stature to claim the ball and score from Volavola's cross kick.

Even this was referred to the TMO for some reason. It was the fifth time he was involved, but it was so obvious, even to the cameraman on the side:

Then Nemani stepped up to take a kick for Fiji.

We're in for a great game.
