How far will England progress in the Rugby World Cup?

ENGLAND play their next match in the Rugby World Cup tomorrow against Romania.

They’ll make a final decision over Nick Easter's future in the competition on Sunday, manager Martin Johnson has confirmed.

Easter missed the 41-10 victory over Georgia after suffering a lower back injury and remains sidelined for tomorrow's Pool B clash.

Leicester number eight Thomas Waldrom has been flown out to Dunedin and is on stand-by to replace Easter if he fails to recover.

James Haskell will start at number eight in Easter's absence, having also successfully deputised for Lewis Moody at openside in England's tournament-opening victory over Argentina.

England are still to replace injured prop Andrew Sheridan in their squad, with Johnson preferring to continue with a 29-man squad and keep his options open.
