In a week which has seen Exeter Chiefs complete a historic double, the news has now broke that both Luke Cowan-Dickie and Jack Nowell will be absent moving forward due to injury.
Although the injuries are reported as minor, both the Winger and Hooker will undergo surgery in the coming weeks. Whilst we wait to hear more on LC-D, we do now know that Nowell will be out for at least a month due to torn ligaments in his toe.
"I've ruptured all the ligaments around my toe, which is not ideal. I've been strapped up for the last two weeks and have had to dig deep a little bit," Nowell stated.
It's unusual to see a team with so much home-grown talent, that has conquered Europe, make up less than 10 percent of the England set-up. We wish Jack Nowell and Luke Cowan-Dickie speedy recoveries!
