England injury concerns mount ahead of World Cup final

England head coach Eddie Jones could have four potential injury problems after already losing scrum-half Willi Heinz.

“Ben Spencer will join the England squad on Monday as an injury replacement for Willi Heinz,” an RFU statement read early on Sunday morning.

But the Gloucester captain may not be the only England casualty following their heroic 17-9 win against the All Blacks on Saturday.

Other potential concerns are knocks sustained by captain Owen Farrell, wings Jonny May and Anthony Watson and prop Kyle Sinckler, according to Rugby Pass.

May, who was rumoured to be carrying a hamstring injury, only lasted 45 minutes while Farrell gave over kicking duties to George Ford due to a dead leg.

Meanwhile, Watson looked like he suffered an upper-body injury while Sinckle departed in the 47th minute with what appeared to be a calf issue.
