England warned over shirt numbers- 12 Sep 2011 00:00:00
The England rugby team have been warned they face a fine if the numbers on their World Cup shirts peel off again during the event – as they did against Argentina on Saturday.
The new Nike black second strip was revealed in August along with its all white counterpart.
The tournament organisers said they would be seeking assurances from England that there will be no repeat in Sunday's Pool B encounter with Romania.
An England spokesman, who would not confirm whether the same numbers would be used against Romania, said: ‘Nobody has contacted us yet. They know we will sort it out’.
