Due to an injury, Immanuel Feyi-Waboso will not be playing in England’s final Six Nations match against France.

Unfortunately, Immanuel Feyi-Waboso will not be able to participate in England’s Six Nations game against France this Saturday due to reporting symptoms of a possible concussion.

Feyi-Waboso sustained a blow to the head in the match against Ireland in round four, where England secured a 23-22 victory. This has given a new burst of hope for England’s chances at the title. Although he continued playing, he later started to experience symptoms that suggest a potential concussion.

The young and dynamic 21-year-old player in the wing position was expected to start in the thrilling Lyon tournament finale, having already made a strong impression in his first full match against Andy Farrell’s team.

“Manny was experiencing some drowsiness and unfortunately cannot participate in the game, but we prioritize caution in regards to such matters,” stated Richard Wigglesworth, the attack coach for England. The team has decided against replacing Feyi-Waboso in their 36-player training squad and instead will have Elliot Daly take his place on the wing in the upcoming match against France.

Feyi-Waboso, a native of Cardiff, was convinced by Steve Borthwick in January to switch his allegiance to the Red Rose. He made his first appearance in the match against Italy and then scored a try against Scotland. In the recent game against Ireland, he was a nuisance for their team.

According to Wigglesworth, there was no significant event. He experienced a knock and felt unwell, so he reported his symptoms and was subsequently removed. Despite being disappointed, he made the responsible choice by reporting his symptoms.

Manny had been steadily progressing. To successfully incorporate these players, Steve did a commendable job of gradually introducing him to Test rugby, allowing him to be prepared for this opportunity to shine. He played exceptionally, making an impact on the game while fulfilling our requests and showcasing his abilities. It’s truly disheartening for him, as I am aware of his strong desire to return to playing and how much he relished his first starting experience.
