Abby Dow breaks her silence after suffering ‘horror’ injury at the weekend

England wing Abby Dow broke her leg in Saturday’s Women’s Six Nations win against Wales, making her a doubt for October’s World Cup.

Dow cried out in pain as she went down in an awkward tackle and play stopped for more than 15 minutes in the first half as she received medical attention.

In her typically light-hearted fashion, she tweeted: “I can now inform you that to go “break a leg” is not a recommend method of achieving good luck. Thank you for everyone’s kind messages and support x”

The Rugby Football Union (RFU) said “she is comfortable in hospital and has undergone surgery”.

It added it is not yet able to give a timescale for Dow’s recovery though centre Emily Scarratt suffered a broken leg in September and was playing five months later.

‘Everyone at England Rugby wishes Abby a full and speedy recovery,’ the RFU added.
