  9. Rugby: Injured May to miss Argentina match

    Press Association

    Leicester's Jonny May is set to miss England's opening autumn international against Argentina after sustaining a hamstring injury during the squad's training camp in Portugal.

    It leaves England with only three fit players in the position for the visit of the Pumas - Anthony Watson, Denny Solomona and Semesa Rokoduguni.

    Losing May would be a significant blow as the 27-year-old has been in blistering form since swapping Gloucester for Leicester this season, crossing 10 times in nine matches for the Tigers.
