Flanker Joe Worsley and centre Mike Tindall have been named in the England team for Saturday’s Six Nations game against defending champions Wales. Worsley and Tindall replace open-side Steffon Armitage and Jamie Noon in the only changes to the side that laboured to a 36-11 win over Italy last weekend.
Steffon Armitage, Ben Foden and Shane Geraghty all fail to make the bench. Toby Flood comes in for Geraghty while Paul Hodgson provides scrum-half cover.
