England and Bath winger Anthony Watson likely to miss autumn Tests

  • Anthony Watson is likely to miss the autumn Tests after breaking his jaw
  • The 24-year-old was injured earlier this week during regular practice at England’s training camp
  • Flanker Sam Jones is also set to miss the November internationals
England wing Anthony Watson is a major doubt for the autumn internationals after suffering a broken jaw.

The 22-year-old Bath back sustained the injury during a training session at the team’s training camp in Brighton on Tuesday.

Watson, who has scored 12 tries in 24 Tests, has been a regular starter for Jones’ side, playing every game of their successful Six Nations campaign and the 3-0 whitewash in Australia.

“It’s too early for a full medical prognosis on how long he’ll be out for, but it’s likely he’ll miss the autumn internationals,” said Bath director of rugby Todd Blackadder.

“He’s in great hands with our medical team and we look forward to seeing him back on the pitch when he’s ready.”

Flanker Sam Jones is also set to miss the matches against South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia after breaking a leg in a judo session in training.
