More Injury Woe For Eddie Jones As Saracens Duo Ruled Out

Eddie Jones will be without Mako Vunipola

Eddie Jones is facing an injury crisis ahead of the November internationals with the news that two more players will be unavailable to him due to injury. 

Jones will be naming his England squad at 9.30 am on Thursday and he may need to make some late changes to that squad as Saracens confirmed today that both Mako Vunipola and Nick Isiekwe will be out for six and eight weeks, respectively.

Vunipola suffered a calf tear in the clash against the Glasgow Warriors at the weekend and Isiekwe suffered an ankle injury in the same clash.

These two injuries have compounded the headache faced by Jones before he names his squad tomorrow. Billy Vunipola has been ruled out with a broken arm, Chris Robshaw will be absent due to a knee injury, as will Joe Launchbury.

With England facing some serious opposition this November including South Africa, New Zealand, Japan and Australia, the loss of these players will make an already challenging fixture list that bit more difficult.
