Anthony Watson has been ruled out of England’s Autumn Nations Cup opener against Georgia because of an ankle injury.

Watson started the 34-5 victory over Italy that clinched the Six Nations title a week ago but the Lions back has been left out of a 36-man training squad to undergo treatment with his club Bath.

George Ford is still troubled by an Achilles issue but he will continue his rehabilitation at England’s Teddington training base.
