England captain Owen Farrell is set to miss their Six Nations training camp following a setback this week.
The fly-half had been in contention to make his return to action in Sarries’ EPCR Challenge Cup match against London Irish this weekend.
It would have been his first appearance since being forced off in England’s Autumn Nations Series win over Australia in November with an ankle injury.
A statement from Saracens read: “Owen Farrell has sustained an injury this week.
“Owen was back in full training having recovered from the ankle injury he sustained against Australia during the Autumn internationals.
“We will have a further update after he sees a specialist early next week.”

LIST | Fans rank every home nations ‘MOST ANNOYING’ current player
We all have those rugby players that just we dislike for whatever reason.
It’s hard to forget those specific moments in matches that had us raging. An injury to your star player? Moaning to the referee?
World class rugby players don’t take losing well, but some take it worse than others.
But who are the 2022 Six Nations stars that rugby fans just love to hate, and why?
IRELAND: Peter O’Mahony
A flanker that plays on the edge and never fails to get under the skin of opposition fans. His late hit on Stuart Hogg and foul-mouthed war of words with the Kyle Sinckler during the 2019 Six Nations did him no favours. The sort of player you love to have, but also love to hate.
