Tindall: 'England will be more adventurous than 2003'
Mike Tindall believes England's current squad is more adventurous than the side that won the World Cup in 2003.

Mike Tindall believes that this year's England Rugby World Cup squad will be more attack-minded than the side that won the competition in 2003.

The 32-year-old centre was part of the team that triumphed eight years ago in Australia and is expected to be selected by coach Martin Johnson for the tournament in New Zealand in September.

"[In 2003] we didn't play as good rugby as we'd like because we didn't want to make any mistake," said Tindall.

"This time we've got so many young players who enjoy running the ball and have fun with it, we're going to take teams on and play fast rugby."

England's will meet Wales at Twickenham this Saturday for their first warm-up encounter.
