England wing Abby Dow is in a race in opposition to time to recuperate for the World Cup after breaking her leg within the 58-5 win over Wales within the Ladies’s Six Nations on Saturday.

The RFU final evening confirmed Dow was ‘snug in hospital’ and may have surgical procedure. Centre Emily Scarratt suffered a damaged leg in September and was taking part in 5 months later.

‘Everybody at England Rugby needs Abby a full and speedy restoration,’ the RFU added.

Rugby’s concussion protocols have been severely criticised in the course of the Six Nations and participant welfare stays one of many sport’s greatest points.
