England got their IRB Under-21 World Championship campaign off to a bright start with a 34-8 win over Fiji.
Newcastle fly-half Toby Flood, playing at inside centre, was England's stand-out player, scoring 19 points.
His converted try, after two penalties, gave England a 13-5 interval lead and further tries from Anthony Allen, Paul Diggin and Jordan Crane sealed the win.
Coach Jim Mallinder said: "It was a very difficult game. Fiji were big and skilful. We had to work hard to win."
He added: "In the end it was pleasing to get a bonus point but we will have to improve for our next difficult game against New Zealand."
Scotland led Australia 14-0 at the break and were 14-13 up late on, thanks to a Ross Rennie try and three penalties from captain David Blair.
