Scans reveal Tom Curry to miss significantly more than the Argentina match

Following a scan this afternoon it has been confirmed that Tom Curry dislocated a small bone in his left wrist during training this afternoon.

He underwent a minor operation this evening and is likely to be out for up to 12 weeks.

Curry was due to be on the bench for England’s game against Argentina on Saturday.

Sam Simmonds has replaced the injured Curry on England’s bench for the Test against Argentina at Twickenham on Saturday.

Curry, who made his first, and so far only, England appearance away to the same opponents in June, hurt his wrist in training on Thursday.

Fellow back-row forward Simmonds had been among the players released back to their clubs when head coach Eddie Jones trimmed his squad to a group of 26 on Tuesday.

But the uncapped Exeter Chiefs player could now make his international debut as a replacement this weekend.
