“Worst injuries you can get ” – Courtney Lawes suffers injury

When Courtney Lawes left the field with a grimace in the 64th minute, England fans up and down the country held their breath.

With the Six Nations fast approaching, Eddie Jones would be devastated to lose his stand-in captain.

However, Saints coach Phil Dowson moved quick to squash fears.

“He was exhausted, and we had lots of forwards on the bench to bring on. Courtney is experienced enough, old enough and 250 games ugly enough to tell us when he’s done. He’s OK I think,” said Dowson

Lawes appeared to have taken a heavy knock around 10 minutes before he was forced off, but again Dowson played down the seriousness of the complaint.

He added: “He was winded and that’s one of the worst injuries you can get for a short period

“I’ve spoken to the medic and there’s nothing glaring. When he says he’s done, he’s very honest.”
