Ben Curry’s World Cup hopes with England ended with a hamstring injury | Rugby union

Ben Curry’s hopes of contributing to England’s Rugby World Cup campaign appear to be over after the Sale flanker was ruled out for at least four months with a hamstring injury. Curry will see a specialist this week with the Sharks confirming he will need surgery on the tendon injury he suffered in Sunday’s Premier League semi-final win over Leicester.

It brings a crushing end to his breakthrough season for England, which saw him win four of his five caps to boost the prospect of featuring in Steve Borthwick’s plans for France this autumn. Sale has given a prognosis of four to six months for his rehabilitation, but has all but ruled him out of the tournament.

“It’s good that my season ended this way, but I look forward to supporting the boys over the next two weeks,” Curry wrote on Instagram.
