Ham­strung Now­ell to be fit for Six Na­tions

The Rugby Paper - - Results -

EX­ETER Chiefs and Eng­land wing Jack Now­ell has been ruled out for eight weeks with a ham­string in­jury. The 25-year-old suf­fered the in­jury while train­ing with Ed­die Jones’ side, hav­ing fea­tured in the games against South Africa, New Zealand and Ja­pan.

“Jack’s got a pretty sig­nif­i­cant ham­string tear,” di­rec­tor of rugby Rob Baxter said. “Iron­i­cally, he should be back in time to fight for a place in the Six Na­tions.”
