Double Blow For England

Double Blow For England

England have suffered a double blow with scrum-half Ben Youngs and centre Manu Tuilagi forced to withdraw from their training camp. The Leicester pair linked up with the national side for their training camp in Bristol but they will now return to their club for treatment.

The Gallagher Premiership outfit confirmed they had both sustained “niggles” in Sunday’s 44-37 defeat to Worcester Warriors.

A club spokesperson said: “They will be assessed by the club in the next few days.”
Harlequins prop Joe Marler has also left the camp due to personal reasons as England continue their preparations ahead of the November internationals.

England head coach Eddie Jones is set to name his squad on October 18 for the fixtures against South Africa, New Zealand, Japan and Australia at Twickenham.
