Tindall performances unaffected by furore - Wilkinson

England fly-half Jonny Wilkinson believes Mike Tindall's performances at the Rugby World Cup were not affected by the media scrutiny of his off-field behaviour but "can't comprehend" the naivety of his England team-mates.

Speaking to BBC Sport before the announcement that Tindall has been removed from England's elite player squad and fined £25,000 for his behaviour in Queenstown on 11 September, Wilkinson trusts that the former England captain was "strong" enough not to let his performances suffer.

The full interview can be heard on 5 live Sport this Sunday from 1200 GMT.
