- Back-row to see specialist over injury, Northampton confirm
- Thumb dislocated in Challenge Cup defeat by Gloucester
The England captain Courtney Lawes is set to see a specialist to determine whether he will play again this season after sustaining a “nasty” hand injury, Northampton’s director of rugby, Chris Boyd, has revealed.
Lawes sustained a compound dislocation of his left thumb in the European Challenge Cup quarter‑final defeat by Gloucester last Saturday and was replaced after just 15 minutes. Boyd did not put any sort of time-frame on the 33-year-old’s recovery, stating only that he will definitely not be in contention for the Premiership match against Bath on Saturday.
