The National - News - Sport - - FOOTBALL -

Wing An­thony Wat­son is to miss ti­tle-hold­ers Eng­land’s open­ing Six Na­tions match with France be­cause of a ham­string in­jury, the Grand Slam win­ners coach Ed­die Jones said. The 22-year-old Bath star – who suf­fered the in­jury dur­ing a squad train­ing camp in Por­tu­gal – will be on the side­lines for up to a month which also rules him out of their fol­low­ing game in Cardiff against Wales and per­haps the game with Italy on Fe­bru­ary 26. “We’re con­fi­dent he’ll be in the mix later in the cham­pi­onship,” Jones said.
