Rugby World Cup 2011: England gear up for Argentina

Martin Johnson's men train at the new 30,000-seater indoor Otago Stadium, the venue for their Pool B opener on Saturday

England are in Dunedin as they continue their final preparations for the World Cup opener against Argentina on Saturday.

England’s players were suitably impressed by the new 30,000-seater indoor Otago Stadium, the venue for the 2003 winners’ first test, after they trained at the ground on Tuesday.

Martin Johnson’s men will be without injured captain Lewis Moody for their first Pool B clash in New Zealand, but the England manager insists the Bath flanker still has a key role to play at the tournament.
