Red Rose boss Eddie Jones will be on tenterhooks over the next few days as the full extent of the injuries sustained to his core player group during Saracens' Heineken Champions Cup victory in Glasgow is discovered.
In a low-scoring 13-3 victory brimming with short tempers and pushing matches, Saracens have suffered injuries ranging from concerning to minor to England sextet Mako and Billy Vunipola, Jamie George, Maro Itoje, Owen Farrell and Nick Isiekwe.
Some consolation for Sarries boss Mark McCall and Jones will come in the news that key England figurehead and incumbent captain Owen Farrell has sustained one of the afternoon's lesser injuries, alongside 20-year-old second row Nick Isiekwe.
Specifics of Farrell's and Isiekwe's injuries are yet to be confirmed, but initial reports from the club suggest that the duo's afflictions are "hopefully" not too serious and may yet feature in the reverse fixture against the Warriors at Allianz Park next weekend, despite the fact Isiekwe was replaced 20 minutes after arriving from the bench, returning to the sidelines in place of French hooker Christopher Tolofua.
Meanwhile, British and Irish Lions tight-five pairing Jamie George and Maro Itoje both suffered broken noses, but saw out the full 80-minutes at Scotstoun, with the latter of the pair collecting a Man Of The Match award for his pains.
The most significant concern surrounds the Vunipola brothers, who will have been inline to play key roles in Jones's Autumn Internationals campaign.
England's absolute first-choice loosehead prop, Mako, requires crutches, with concerns surrounding his ankle, while significant concern surrounds an injury to Billy's left forearm. A cruel blow for the latter of the siblings, who only recently returned having suffered back-to-back fractures to his right forearm.
With England likely to be without Wasps number eight Nathan Hughes following a citing for punching Gloucester flanker Lewis Ludlow last weekend and Exeter number eight Sam Simmonds in a race to return to fitness before the end of the season after suffering knee ligament damage, Eddie Jones may find himself without his first, second and third choice number eights, with uncapped 20-year-old Zach Mercer standing as the next man in.
