England Star Emerges As A Doubt For Six Nations Opener With Ireland

Doubtful.

The 2019 Six Nations is less than a month away – with holders Ireland set to kickstart their campaign with a huge clash against old rivals England at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Jones’ are revitalised after a successful November series that saw them defeat South Africa and Australia, as well as pushing the All Blacks all the way, losing by just a single point.

Meanwhile it’s been business as usual for Ireland who defeated the All Blacks as part of their November clean sweep. Defeating Joe Schmidt’s men will be no easy task for England, and it appears that task just got even harder.

Jones looks set to be without the man who almost secured him a win over New Zealand, with flanker Sam Underhill a major doubt for the game on February 2.

His club Bath has confirmed that the 22-year-old will be out of action for around 4 weeks after sustaining ankle ligament damage during their Premiership victory over Leicester Tigers on Sunday.
