Injury News: Eddie Jones gives update on Joe Launchbury and Jonny May

Eddie Jones has given an update on the condition of lock Joe Launchbury and winger Jonny May after they limped out of England’s clash with Samoa.

England made it three wins out of three this autumn with another late flurry of tries against Samoa, triumphing 48-14 at Twickenham.

Jones revealed post-match that Launchbury has got a ‘slight AC damage’ but it ‘doesn’t appear to be too bad’.

However, the Aussie did admit that he wouldn’t know the full extent of the issue until the Wasps second-row has a scan on Sunday.

Meanwhile, May will have to do the return to play protocols.

The winger, who was replaced by Semesa Rokoduguni,  failed an HIA after a collision with Ahsee Tual.

On the game, Jones said“We started well but got seduced by the perceived easiness of the match and stopped doing the small things well and got pulled back before finishing it off.

“Elliot Daly was superb. George Ford controlled the game well at 10 and Sam Simmonds did pretty well on his first start.

“We’ve got a hell of a lot of work to do. We don’t have the consistency yet but we’ve got two years to put that right.”
