Winger Fercu replaced in Romania World Cup squad

Winger Fercu replaced in Romania World Cup squad

Rugby World Cup organizers have confirmed Romanian winger Catalin Fercu has withdrawn from the tournament, saying he has been diagnosed with pneumonia.
The Romanians arrived in Invercargill earlier this week without the veteran winger, with initial reports suggesting his absence was due to a fear of flying and domestic media quoting squad captain Marius Tincu as saying the late decision was "stupid."
RWC organizers announced late Tuesday that Fercu had been replaced by Adrian Marian Apostol.
Romania, the last team to qualify, plays its opening World Cup match against Scotland at Invercargill on Saturday.
