May out of England Squad
Jonny May has withdrawn from the England men’s squad with a knee injury.
Courtney Lawes is unavailable to train this week as he is undergoing head injury return to play protocols.
Elliot Daly and George Ford have been called up to the squad, while Nick Isiekwe has also joined as injury cover for Lawes. Eddie Jones’ side have met today in Brighton to begin training for the Guinness Six Nations.
England’s first game is against Scotland in Edinburgh on Saturday 5 February. Following Owen Farrell’s withdrawal from the squad, Jones will now name a new team captain ahead of the Calcutta Cup fixture.
England will then travel to Rome to face Italy (Sunday 13 February) before two home games at Twickenham Stadium against Wales (Saturday 26 February) and Ireland (Saturday 12 March). Their final game is in Paris against France on Saturday 19 March
