England star tests positive for Covid after arriving in Australia

England wingerJonny May has tested positive for Covid.

The speedster will now spend seven days in self-isolation per the Western Australian government regulations and will setback Eddie Jones’s preparation for the tour of his home country.

“We’re not going to rule Jonny May out at this stage. We’ll just see how he is,” Jones said.

“Potentially he’ll be available next Thursday to train, so we’ll have a look to see what he’s like because he’s experienced and he’s showed in his first game back against the Barbarians that he’s lacking game time and that he’s got his best rugby ahead of him.

“We’ll just monitor his situation and make an assessment closer to the day when he gets out.”
