Blow for Eng­land as Underhill is ruled out of Six Na­tions

The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SPORTS -

Eng­land flanker Sam Underhill will miss the Six Na­tions after un­der­go­ing an an­kle op­er­a­tion.

Underhill’s club Bath have con­firmed the 22-year-old will be out of ac­tion for up to three months.

Underhill suf­fered dam­aged an­kle lig­a­ments dur­ing Bath’s vic­tory against Le­ices­ter on De­cem­ber 30th.

It was ini­tially thought Underhill had merely rolled his an­kle but after see­ing a spe­cial­ist it was de­cided he needed an op­er­a­tion, rul­ing him out un­til mid-April.
