Moody out of France warm-up

Figure image
Tigers flanker Lewis Moody has been ruled out of England's final home World Cup warm-up match against France on Saturday with a calf injury.

His No.7 shirt will go to London Wasps' Joe Worsley, who played in that position in the win over Wales last weekend, with Bath second row Steve Borthwick moving up to the replacements bench.
England head coach Brian Ashton said: "A scan on Thursday showed a tiny calf muscle tear and it just not worth the risk."

Leicester's Ben Kay is in England's starting line-up and club colleague George Chuter is named on the bench for Saturday's game which represents the final chance for players to stake a claim for World Cup selection.
