England winger Jack Nowell could be out for more than two months after surgery on his thumb.

The 23-year-old Exeter Chiefs player featured in all three of England's wins over Australia in June.

Nowell will miss Exeter's three pre-season games and their opening Premiership fixtures against semi-finalists Wasps and champions Saracens.

"It is potentially something like an eight-to-10-week injury," Exeter head coach Rob Baxter told the Express & Echo.
