Marland Yarde’s hopes of breaking into the England squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup appear to be over.
Sale has confirmed that Yarde ruptured his MCL and ACL ligaments and dislocated his left knee while making a tackle in the 76th minute of the club’s 20-7 win against Newcastle at the AJ Bell Stadium on Saturday.
Unfortunately true but so easily could have been worse. I will continue to stay positive and be back stronger and better for this experience! I have great people around me who will help me through this tough time and watch the team reach its potential and drive up the table 🦈 🌟 https://t.co/XsAXgaGuhx

It’s expected that the winger will be out for a minimum of six months which means his target will be to return for pre-season training.
That will give very little time to press his claims for a World Cup place.
Overwhelmed and thankful for the messages I’ve received over night and this morning. Resting and recovering as best as I can. I’ll be back for sure! 💯🙏🏽 #chasers
