England and Romania team announcements for their 2011 Rugby World Cup Pool B match at Otago Stadium in Dunedin. England has named a strong team for what most are predicted to be an easy win. England legend Jonny Wilkinson comes in for Toby Flood at fly half, who moves to the bench. After a week in the headlines for all the wrong reasons, Mike Tindall returns to the midfield at 12. Although winning comfortably against Georgia, the England team were far from happy with that performance. They will be looking to reduce their penalty count in this match.
Lewis Moody has finally overcome injury to take his place as captain of the England team.
