England Team for Wales

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.
