Anthony Watson suffers broken jaw

10:53 AM GMT

England have suffered a second injury blow ahead of the autumn internationals with Anthony Watson sustaining a broken jaw.

Watson sustained the injury in regular training while on the England camp in Brighton and is now “likely to miss” the November Tests, according to Bath coach Todd Blackadder.

“Anthony Watson broke his jaw in the England training camp earlier this week,” Blackadder confirmed. “It’s too early for a full medical prognosis on how long he’ll be out for, but it’s likely he’ll miss the Autumn Internationals.

“He’s in great hands with our medical team, and we look forward to seeing him back on the pitch when he’s ready.”

The news follows on from Sam Jones’ broken leg which he suffered in judo training.
