Owen misses Six Na­tions

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
