Jonny May injury | Eddie Jones reveals why the winger went off

England winger Jonny May was forced to leave the field with an injury against Tonga as Eddie Jones’ men recorded a 35-3 win in their Rugby World Cup opener.

There was a worry that the Leicester winger had suffered a hamstring injury in the 51st minute.

But Jones was quick to explain the Jonny May injury in his post-match interview with ITV.

“He just ran too much and gone down with a bit of cramp,” revealed Jones, much to the relief of England fans.

England got off to a spluttering but winning start as they fought their way past unfancied Tonga.

A brace from powerhouse Manu Tuilagi and a second-half rumble from Jamie George off a driving maul opened a gap, Owen Farrell landing three penalties and two conversions.

Replacement hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie grabbed the bonus-point fourth try.
