Watson an England Test doubt with suspected broken jaw

Anthony Watson

Watson made his England debut in November 2014

England winger Anthony Watson is a doubt for the autumn Tests with a suspected fractured jaw.

The Bath player, 22, suffered the injury earlier this week during regular practice at England’s training camp.

Flanker Sam Jones is also set to miss the matches against South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia after breaking his leg in a judo session in training.

The Wasps man, 24, suffered a fractured fibula while grappling with lock Maro Itoje at the training camp in Brighton.

It was England’s final training session before head coach Eddie Jones names his squad for the four Test matches.

Watson, who has scored 12 tries in 24 caps, has been a regular starter for Jones’ side, playing every game of their successful Six Nations campaign and the 3-0 whitewash in Australia.
