England flank Tom Curry has actually been eliminated for the begin of the 2023 Six Nations competitors because of a hamstring injury.
Curry, that skippered his nation in the opening rounds of the 2022 Six Nations, hopped off throughout an English Premiership win for the Sale Sharks versus Harlequins on Sunday.
“I have just spoken to Tom and said get your head on for the Six Nations but don’t stop being a leader for us over the next two or three weeks. He will get a scan,” Sharks manager Alex Sanderson stated post-match.
“He is walking around and it has stiffened up now. It’s not one of those where he limped off the field so fingers crossed he will be available against Scotland.”

The first clinical testimonial recommended that Curry would certainly be eliminated up until March however that possible return day has actually been advanced as well as Sanderson has actually forecasted the 27-year-old need to be offered for England’s clash versus Wales on 25 February, otherwise prior to that.
“That’s positive from a rugby supporter’s point of view,” Sanderson informed press reporters on Wednesday in an upgrade on the level of the Curry injury. “Obviously, I prefer to him not be harmed.
“We believed 3C hamstring tear, however it is a 2C hamstring tear so it had not been as poor as initially believed. We obtained him checked, obtained his examined, obtained him re-assessed.
“So a 3C would certainly have been 6 to 8 weeks [out] as well as he is aiming to dip into the backside of the Six Nations.
“With it being a 2C and with Tom being very diligent in his rehab, it means he could be back for Wales if not the second game [against Italy on 12 February]. But certainly Wales, so that is a real positive for England and for all of us because I want England to do well.”
England begin their Six Nations war Scotland at Twickenham on 4 February.
