Eddie Jones finally gets good news on the injury front
England has received a boost ahead of their autumn series.
Leicester Tigers has announced that Jonny May’s shoulder injury is only minor and he could even be available for the weekend’s Champions Cup action.
May was hurt early in the first half of Saturday’s victory over Northampton after running into Teimana Harrison and Alex Waller and was forced to leave the pitch using his jersey as a makeshift sling.
Initial fears that the injury could be serious receded following an X-ray after the game and Tigers interim coach Geordan Murphy on Tuesday delivered another positive update.
“Jonny has a bang on his AC joint which is pretty painful, but there’s no structural damage,’ Murphy said.
“We’re hopeful he could be available for the weekend. It’s certainly not a long-term injury.”
