Leicester Tigers winger Jonny May faces an “extended period” out after fracturing his cheekbone in England’s 33-30 Six Nations win over Wales.
The 29-year-old was forced off at Twickenham and has had surgery, posting an update on his twitter account.
All fixed up 🤕🔪— Jonny May (@J0nnyMay) March 15, 2020
It’s never good picking up an injury but I will use this as an opportunity to regenerate, sharpen up 🪓 and will be doing everything I can to get back on the pitch as soon as possible 🙏 #StaySafe 🧼😷🦠 pic.twitter.com/oNab5yUR4l
“All fixed up,” wrote the Leicester speedster. “It’s never good picking up an injury but I will use this as an opportunity to regenerate, sharpen up and will be doing everything I can to get back on the pitch as soon as possible.”
Who are the fastest players at the 2020 Six Nations?
The 2020 Six Nations will take place across six cities, with the tournament taking place across eight weeks in February and March.
Who’s quickest to and on the ball always plays a huge role in rugby, so we decided to look at some of the fastest players selected for the 2020 Six Nations
VIRIMI VAKATAWA – France – 11.3 SECONDS (100m)
He truly is such a talented player. The Fijian-born French International has played at an unreal level for Racing 92 of late and will be a key part of Les Bleus World Cup campaign. His speed and power make him a unique player.
JACOB STOCKDALE – Ireland – 11.35 SECONDS (100M)
In March 2018, Stockdale received the 2018 Six Nations Player of the Tournament Award after setting a try-scoring record of 7 as Ireland claimed the title and won their first Grand Slam since the 2009 victory. Unplayable on his day.
