MORE ENGLAND SIX NATIONS NEWS

BILLY VUNIPOLA is ruled out of the entire 2018 Championship after fracturing his forearm last weekend.

This is just the latest in a series of injuries that Billy has sustained over the last year.
He missed out on the British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand in the summer due to a shoulder injury.

If that wasn't bad enough, then came knee surgery in September and he was then ruled out for almost four months.

His latest injury now looks likely to rule him out until April.


OTHER ENGLAND ABSENTEES FROM EDDIE JONES' ENGLAND SQUAD:
Jack Clifford, Matt Mullan, Nathan Hughes, Beno Obano and Ellis Genge also join Vunipola on the list of absentees.


SOME GOOD NEWS FOR ENGLAND FANS

MIKE BROWN:
Eddie Jones expects England's injured Full Back, Mike Brown, to be fit for England's Six Nations opener.

WALES SIX NATIONS NEWS

RHYS PRIESTLAND

Bath Fly-Half, Rhys Priestland, has sustained a Hamstring injury which is likely to prevent him from featuring in this year's Six Nations Championship for Wales.

A statement from the WRU read: "Following further assessments and consultation with a specialist it has been concluded that due to the severity of Rhys Priestland's hamstring injury, he will remain at Bath Rugby for ongoing rehabilitation and will not link up with the Wales squad on Monday morning.

"It is envisaged that the injury will preclude him from taking an active part for the majority of the Championship hence this course of action has been deemed the most appropriate."

LEIGH HALFPENNY

There has been a question mark over the fitness of WALES' Full Back and Kicker, Leigh Halfpenny, for this year's Six Nations Championship, following a pectoral injury sustained while playing for his club SCARLETS against Cardiff Blues on New Year's Eve.

The good news is that Leigh has recovered from that chest injury, but will remain on the bench when his club plays against his former club, TOULON, on Saturday.

DAN BIGGAR INJURY FEAR!

Wales' First Choice Fly Half (10) Dan Biggar took a bad blow to his shoulder while playing an away game for his club OSPREYS v Clermont Auvergne, France.

Wales have already lost Bath Fly Half, RHYS PRIESTLAND, due to injury so this will be a huge worry for Wales Head Coach Warren Gatland so close to the opening of this year's Six Nations Championship.


ANOTHER WORRY FOR WALES ....
Saracens Back Rower, LIAM WILLIAMS, also failed a late fitness test on Saturday for their game v Northampton.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/42762480


Wales have already lost their regular Captain- Flanker SAM WARBURTON and first choice 13, Centre Jonathan Davies, to injury.
