Tom Curry will need to undergo hip surgery and will most likely not be able to participate in the Six Nations due to this being the only feasible option.
Unfortunately, England’s future plans have hit a roadblock as Tom Curry has been informed that he must undergo hip surgery, causing him to be sidelined for the remainder of the season. The highly regarded flanker for Sale will have to undergo an extended period of recovery and will not be able to play for his club or country until the upcoming fall.
The 25-year-old reached his 50th game for England during the bronze final victory against Argentina at the World Cup. He has sought advice from experts at Harley Street, who have suggested a procedure to clean out his hip socket and remove a small amount of bone. Alex Sanderson, director of rugby for the Sharks, stated that this is the only viable solution. Despite his young age, it is in his best interest to undergo this operation to improve his durability and training for the future development of his game.
Curry’s dynamic and enthusiastic playing style is a major factor in both England and the Sharks’ high regard for him. However, he has faced a demoralizing string of injuries. A hamstring issue kept him from participating in this year’s Six Nations and he also sustained an ankle injury prior to the World Cup. In addition, he was red carded just three minutes into the first pool match against the Pumas.
Unfortunately, it was a day that highlighted the physical strain of being a top-level rugby union player. Val Rapava-Ruskin, a prop for Gloucester, has received news that he requires knee surgery and will be sidelined for a few months. However, Saracens have provided a more positive update on Ben Earl, who was one of England’s standout performers at the World Cup.
The flanker is expected to recover in time for the beginning of the Six Nations tournament, despite having undergone surgery on his knee. Earl underwent a minor procedure to fix his medial meniscus today and is projected to return to the field within six to eight weeks. There were concerns that he may miss the first few matches of the Six Nations, but his coach at Saracens, Mark McCall, is now certain that he will make a speedier recovery.
McCall stated that he predicts the player will participate in games during the month of January. With three or four games scheduled for that month, there is enough time for Ben to return to play. After a busy schedule in August, September, and October with many minutes of play, a six-week break from rugby may actually benefit him in the future. The team is relieved that the injury is not long-term or serious.
Unfortunately, Saracens may be missing another English player, Alex Lozowski, until next summer due to an anterior cruciate ligament tear during their recent victory against Harlequins. Another Sarries player, Callum Hunter-Hill, will also be out of action for four months due to injury. However, Elliot Daly has been given the all-clear to return to playing after a hamstring issue caused him to withdraw from the Quins game just before kick-off.
