England’s flanker Sam Underhill is a doubt for the start of their Six Nations campaign after sustaining an ankle injury in Bath’s victory over Leicester Tigers.
Bath have confirmed that the flanker Sam Underhill needs to see a specialist after damaging ankle ligaments during Sunday’s 23-16 Premiership win over Leicester and it is understood the former could be out for a minimum of four weeks.
Underhill, who has nine England caps, featured in three of the November internationals and was a standout player in the one-point defeat against world champions New Zealand.
Quins also say Chris Robshaw, sidelined since early October with a knee problem, will not make a competitive return to action before England’s Six Nations squad is announced on 17 January, although he has resumed light running.
England kick off their Six Nations campaign against title holders Ireland on Feb. 2, before facing France at Twickenham eight days later.
