Six Nations: England winger Anthony Watson to miss France & Wales games
England winger Anthony Watson will miss the Six Nations games against France and Wales after a scan revealed he has suffered a hamstring strain.
The 22-year-old Bath player will be out for three to four weeks, with Grand Slam winners England's title defence beginning at Twickenham on 4 February.
England travel to Wales seven days later, then host Italy on 26 February.
"We know he'll rehab diligently to get himself right to go as soon as he can," said England head coach Eddie Jones.
"We're confident he'll be in the mix later in the championship."
Watson missed the autumn internationals with a broken jaw, and his absence could present an opportunity to Gloucester's Jonny May.
