England captain Lewis Moody is prepared to face Wales at Twickenham this weekend.

Lewis Moody has admitted that he can’t wait to captain England against Wales in the national side’s first World Cup warm-up match on Saturday.

The 33-year-old missed out on winning the RBS Six Nations competition with England after he suffered a knee injury, but is gearing up for his return at the weekend.

"It's the exciting part - you get a chance to play and go out on the pitch and do what you're paid to do," Moody told Sky Sports.

"I had a few games at the end of last season, although I obviously missed the Six Nations. But I got back fit for Bath and got a couple of games in.

"It was nice to finish the season that way, but the reason we're all rugby players is because we want to play the game and for me that's the most important thing. To be out there and to get to play at Twickenham this weekend will be fantastic."

The flanker will join his teammates in World Cup warm-up fixtures against Wales, Ireland and Argentina.
