England winger Joe Cokanasiga is a major doubt for their Six Nations opener against Ireland in Dublin, after suffering a serious knee injury in the closing stages of Bath’s Champions Cup defeat to Leinster on Saturday afternoon.
The Premiership club today confirmed Cokanasiga suffered a torn medial knee ligament during Saturday’s 17-10 Pool 1 loss at the Rec, and has been ruled out until the New Year.
Cokanasiga made his debut for Eddie Jones’ side in November, bagging tries against Japan and Australia. The 21-year-old is highly rated and is expected to become an integral part of England’s set-up in the months and years to come.
