Injury News: England forward forced to withdraw from training

Eddie Jones has another problem at loosehead prop after Ellis Genge picked up an ankle injury in training ahead of England’s clash with Wales next weekend.

“Ellis Genge in training today reported a sore ankle so he was withdrawn,” said England’s forwards coach, Steve Borthwick.


“He reported the ankle so we said: ‘Right, stop training, we won’t push that.’ We don’t think there will be any major consequences. It’s ongoing and it was the right decision to ensure he didn’t finish training.

“Mako’s play has been exceptional. It’s disappointing because he’s a very good player. But we’ve also got some very good loosehead props in Ben Moon, look at the way he played in November, and while Genge left training today he’s also an excellent player.”
