England coach gives update on Maro Itoje

England lock Maro Itoje could be fit to return for Saturday’s Six Nations match against Wales in Cardiff after he was initially ruled out.

The 24-year-old initially thought his tournament was over after suffering d medial ligament damage.

However, asked if Itoje may face Wales, England defence coach John Mitchell said: “He’s certainly progressing really well.

“I’ll leave that to the medical team and the boss [Eddie Jones] but we’re very encouraged by what we see.”
