England has revealed they are unable to put a time frame on Jack Nowell‘s return to action.
Therefore, doubt persists over his availability for the World Cup.
The 26-year-old Exeter wing is still recovering from the ankle injury incurred during the Gallagher Premiership final in early June.

However, despite a routine surgical review completed last week, England are unable to set a date for his comeback.
“Jack is progressing. He went back to his club and we’re hoping he’ll be back and ready to be an option,” assistant coach Neal Hatley said.
“The review with him will be ongoing. He’s a good healer so we’ll see where we get to with him.”
