Injury News: Another England star has suffered a setback

England and Bath winger Anthony Watson faces an extended, unspecified lay-off from after he re-tore an Achilles tendon in pre-season.

The 24-year-old suffered the initial injury while playing full-back in England’s 24-15 Six Nations defeat by Ireland in March this year.

And he missed the end of Bath’s Premiership campaign plus the national team’s summer tour of South Africa.

Bath boss Todd Blackadder called the latest setback a “start-again injury.”
