Sam Underhill to miss England’s Six Nations campaign after ankle surgery

Sam Underhill will miss the entire Six Nations having had surgery on his ankle.

The 22-year-old Bath flanker will be out for up to three months, after injuring himself on December 30 against Leicester.

Underhill, whose global career has been disrupted badly by injury since he made his debut in 2017, will not have another competitive Test match in which to press his claims for World Cup selection.

England travel to Dublin to face Ireland in their first match on 2 February (kick-off 16:45 GMT).

The news comes as a blow to England head coach Eddie Jones following Underhill's impressive displays in the Autumn internationals.

Bath will also be without Tom Ellis for the next six to eight weeks, as he undergoes rehabilitation after suffering ligament damage to his elbow against Worcester Warriors last weekend.
