Luke Cowan-Dickie suffered a knee injury against Wales

Luke Cowan-Dickie has been ruled out of the rest of England’s Six Nations campaign due to a knee injury.

The Exeter Chiefs hooker could actually be out for the rest of the season, as a result of the damage he sustained during the first half of England’s 23-19 victory overt Wales at Twickenham Stadium.

“It’s a pretty significant injury,” Rob Baxter, Exeter Chiefs’ director of rugby said. “It’s knee ligament and a bit of cartilage damage.

“There’s further assessment going on but he’s definitely going to be out for a significant period of time, possibly the rest of the season.”
