England winger Anthony Watson suffered yet another injury as he limped out of Bath's dead-rubber defeat by Harlequins in the Champions Cup.
The 25-year-old, who has battled Achilles tendon problems in the past two seasons and a recent knee injury, was replaced on 51 minutes.
England's Six Nations campaign starts away to France on 2 February.
Quins' number eight Alex Dombrandt got the game's decisive try in front of watching England coach Eddie Jones.
The international hopeful sprinted clear in typically forceful style to open up a 22-14 lead for the visitors on 56 minutes and, while Jackson Willison crossed for Bath soon after, the hosts could never quite close the gap.
In an evenly-matched first half, Bath's pack had shoved Jack Walker over for an early score before Quins responded in kind as James Chisholm scored from a catch and drive.
Gabriel Ibitoye scored for the visitors after a searing break from Aaron Morris but Gabe Hamer-Webb dived in at the corner to edge Bath 14-12 clear at the break.
Harlequins had injury worries of their own as captain Chris Robshaw was forced from the fray just before half-time, but the successful return to action for Kyle Sinckler - after the England prop missed their defeat to Sale - will have cheered both Quins coach Paul Gustard and Jones.
