Borthwick out of opener
11 February 2004 11:02am
Steve Borthwick has been ruled out of the England 22 for Sunday's RBS 6 Nations Championship opener against Italy in Rome.
Borthwick has been cited for alleged foul play during Bath's Premiership defeat against leaders Wasps last Saturday.
He will now face a hearing next Tuesday and, under RBS 6 Nations rules, he cannot play for his country while a disciplinary matter is pending.
Borthwick's place on the bench will be take by Wasps second-row forward Simon Shaw.
