England could lose winger May for Six Nations

Jonny May could miss the Six Nations

England could lose Gloucester winger Jonny May for the whole of the Six Nations as he needs surgery on his knee.

Twenty-five-year-old May had to limp off the field whilst playing in Gloucester’s draw with Harlequins last week on Sunday.

England begin their Six nations under newly appointed coach Eddie Jones in Scotland on the 6th of February and could feature a new group of players.

“Jonny has suffered a pretty significant knee injury that requires surgery,” Gloucester Director of Rugby David Humphreys told the Gloucester Citizen.

“He’s seeing a specialist on Tuesday and based on the outcome of that we will have a much clearer picture of what needs to be done.

“Most importantly, it is a huge blow for Jonny to suffer an injury like that at this stage of the season. But knowing him and his dedication, he will leave no stone unturned in his recovery.”

Jones will already be without centre Henry Slade, back row Dave Ewers and prop Kieran Brookes through injury.
