“Major doubt” – Ellis Genge the latest England star to suffer injury blow

England’s Six Nations hopes hang in the balance as Ellis Genge races against time to recover from a hamstring injury ahead of the championship’s kick-off.

The prop, sidelined since Bristol’s 51-26 victory over Gloucester on December 2, could impact Steve Borthwick’s captaincy decision.

According to RUCK, it is indicated that the England coach has narrowed down his list of potential captains to Ellis Genge and Jamie George.

Bristol confirmed Genge’s hamstring injury days later, initially projecting a full recovery in time for the Six Nations.

A recent report from the Mail Online suggests Genge is utilising a hyperbaric chamber, breathing pure oxygen in a pressurised environment, to expedite his recovery.

While Bristol remains optimistic about Genge’s availability for the Six Nations opener against Italy on February 3, uncertainties surround his fitness, adding suspense to England’s preparations.
