Sam Jones suffers ankle injury just days after England call-up as battle for No 7 shirt takes another twist
England's plans for the autumn Test campaign at Twickenham have suffered another untimely setback today, as Wasps flanker Sam Jones injured an ankle during training in Brighton this morning.
Just four days after being called into the senior national squad for the first time, the 24-year-old is returning to his club for further medical assessments, to determine the extent of the injury.
However, at this stage it must be highly unlikely that he will be considered for the matches against South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia, starting on November 12.
