London - Mike Tindall appears ready to forsake his royal honeymoon in an attempt to secure his place in England's rugby team for the Rugby World Cup.

Tindall, who will be sidelined for 12 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair ankle-ligament damage, is to marry Zara Phillips - Queen Elizabeth II's eldest granddaughter - on July 30 in Edinburgh.

England plays its first warm-up match ahead of the World Cup in New Zealand seven days later, against Wales at Twickenham. Coach Martin Johnson says Tindall has declared his availability for the match.

Johnson says on Tuesday that the pair will probably "have another conversation closer to the time."

Tindall, who was a member of England's World Cup-winning team in 2003, recently captained the team to the Six Nations title.
