Matt Banahan: Injury boost for Bath and England centre

Bath centre Matt Banahan has been told the knee injury he picked up in Saturday's win over Wasps is not as bad as first feared.

The England international scored the opening try in the 30-23 victory at the Rec before being forced off after 72 minutes wearing a leg brace.

The Premiership club have confirmed he strained the knee and has bruising to the bone.

It is not yet known how long Banahan will have to spend on the sidelines.
