Daily Mail - - Sports Mail - NIK SI­MON

OL­LIE THOR­LEY could miss out on the World Cup after suf­fer­ing a knee in­jury. The Glouces­ter winger is not ex­pected to play in the Premier­ship again, un­less his club reach the play-offs. Thor­ley was a reg­u­lar in Six Na­tions squads but is yet to make his Eng­land de­but. He has been in great form at Glouces­ter, with six tries in 11 games, yet now has lim­ited chances to seal a spot in Ed­die Jones’s squad. ‘The­o­ret­i­cally he’s fin­ished for the sea­son,’ said Glouces­ter coach Jo­han Ack­er­mann. ‘The fact he doesn’t need an op­er­a­tion means he could be ready to go in June for World Cup camps. We want to give him the best pos­si­ble chance for that.’
