Eddie Jones confirms England and Bath full back suffered serious injury
England head coach Eddie Jones has spoken about the injury Bath star Anthony Watson sustained against Ireland at Twickenham yesterday.
The speedster was driven off the pitch on a buggy in the 34th minute of the clash with Ireland at Twickenham.
Medics could be seen holding his ankle on the pitch after the full back stayed on the ground following a collision.
Jones confirmed post-match that Watson had suffered an Achilles injury, adding that it was “not good”, but did not offer any more information.
The news will be a blow to Eddie’s England, who travel to South Africa in the summer, and Bath too, who face a stern Aviva Premiership run-in.
The full back recently underwent rehabilitation work on another Achilles injury last year.
