Saracens stated he can be out for as much as 10 weeks.
“Owen is out of the Six Nations. It is a huge blow for him personally and for the workforce it is a blow,” Jones stated on the match launch. “But it surely’s clearly a possibility for different guys to step up into management roles and for different gamers to play for that No. 12 jumper.
