Bath boss gives update on Anthony Watson injury scare

Bath boss Stuart Hooper has moved to play down an injury scare surrounding England star Anthony Watson.

The winger limped out of Bath’s 25-19 Champions Cup defeat to Quins at the Recreation Ground on Friday.

 “He feels all right,” Bath rugby director Hooper said.

“We were just making sure we looked after him. I think he’s all right, yes.

“It’s not his knee. He just pulled up a bit tight, so we just brought him off.”

England looks like being without injured Exeter centre Henry Slade for the early Six Nations action, with the World Cup runners-up facing France in a Paris opener on February 2.
