Owen misses Six Nations
OWEN FARRELL has been ruled out of England’s entire Six Nations campaign with a knee injury.
The Saracens fly-half, who was expected to supply midfield cover from the bench, suffered a high grade medial ligament strain on Sunday.
“It’s a real shame for Owen and we wish him the best for his recovery,” said head coach Stuart Lancaster.
Farrell’s absence has opened the door for Danny Cipriani, with George Ford starting the Championship opener at the Millennium Stadium.
