Romania makes 6 changes for World Cup opener

Captain and hooker Marius Tincu returns in the front row as Romania makes six changes to its starting lineup for its opening Rugby World Cup match against Scotland.
Tincu missed the last two matches, including a 41-16 win over Ukraine last month.
Eight members of the starting lineup for Saturday's match also started in Romania's last World Cup match in 2007, a 85-8 loss to the New Zealand All Blacks.
Scrumhalf Lucian Sirbu will equal the national record of involvement in four World Cup tournaments, equaling the Romanian mark set by current coach Romeo Gontineac.
