Leicester Tigers fly-half Toby Flood joins club colleagues Julian White and Tom Croft on the England bench for this weekend's RBS 6 Nations match against Wales, while Harry Ellis retains his place in the starting XV.

Team manager Martin Johnson has made two changes to the XV with Mike Tindall replacing Jamie Noon at centre and Joe Worsley starting in the back row instead of Steffon Armitage.

Flood is joined on the bench by London Irish scrum-half Paul Hodgson and Gloucester back rower Luke Narraway in two further changes from the 22 that kicked off this season’s Championship with a win over Italy.
