Bucharest - Romania coach Lynn Howells left South African-born flank Randall Morrison out of his 31-strong squad on Tuesday for next month's Rugby World Cup in England and Wales.
Howells has also dropped seven other players from his preliminary squad including flyhalf Dorin Manole, No 8 Vlad Nistor and experienced prop Mihai Adascalitei.
Hooker Eugen Capatana, No 8 Daniel Carpo and wing Madalin Lemnaru were selected, along with experienced No 8 Ovidiu Tonita who has won more than 70 caps.
The 35-year-old Tonita is set to appear in his fourth World Cup.
There is also a place for Saracens fullback Catalin Fercu who missed the tournament in New Zealand four years ago because of a fear of flying.
Romania face Tonga in their final warm-up match in Bucharest on September 5.
Howells' men are in World Cup Pool D with France, Ireland, Italy and Canada.
