Anthony Watson's participation in the remainder of England's Guinness Six Nations campaign is uncertain after he was ruled out of the round three fixture against Ireland.

Watson was due to start the opener against France but was withdrawn on the eve of the team announcement because of a calf problem he was carrying before entering Eddie Jones' pre-tournament camp.

The Bath wing was subsequently ruled out of last Saturday's Calcutta Cup victory over Scotland and Jones has now revealed he will miss at least one more game.

"Anthony Watson is still a couple of weeks away," said Jones at England's training base in Kensington.
