Leicester's Mike Williams ruled out with broken arm to add to Eddie Jones' England woes
England's search for a No 7 for the autumn campaign has been dealt a fifth blow after Leicester's Mike Williams was ruled out for up to three months with a broken arm.
After injuries to James Haskell, Jack Clifford, Sam Jones and Sam Underhill, Williams had emerged as the front-runner to become Eddie Jones' starting openside.
But less than a fortnight after being called up to the Red Rose squad, the 24-year-old now faces more surgery after a recurrence of the forearm injury he suffered in 2015.
