With their third pool B game against Romania nearing, England have a mounting injury list and will hope no more players join the sick bay.

Martin Johnson's side will face Romania at Dunedin on Saturday, but will be worried by the number of absentees in Tuesday's training session. Ben Foden, Matt Stevens, Nick Easter and Alex Corbisiero all sat out, hoping to recover in time for Saturday.

Nick Easter is still nursing a back injury that ruled him out of the 41-10 victory against Gerogia on Sunday - an injury he sustained just days after going bungee jumping during the controversial players day-out in Queenstown.

The Harlequins No.8 took a 134-metre bungee jump over the Nevis river, Queenstown last week, and there was speculation that he might have injured his back in the process. However, the England management confirmed that the jump had nothing to do with his injury as he had trained through the week and only sustained the injury a day before the Georgia game.

England have been forced to call up Thomas Waldrom as a cover for Easter, although he will not join up with the squad unless he is officially brought in.

Apart from Easter, scum-half Foden has a strain on his side while Stevens, prop, sprained his ankle in the Georgia game and is continuing his recovery. Corbisiero is another player who sustained an injury against on Sunday, as he felt a calf problem.

England also lost Andrew Sheridan for the whole tournament as he suffered a shoulder injury in the 13-9 victory over Argentina. They are yet to name an official replacement.
