Eddie Jones on Ruaridh McConnochie's 'soreness' ahead of Wales clash

Ruaridh McConnochie has become a late doubt for England's World Cup warm-up Test against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday because of muscle soreness.

McConnochie was due to make his international debut in the opening fixture of the build-up to Japan 2019 against Warren Gatland's men last weekend but was withdrawn due to a hip problem.

The Bath wing, a sevens specialist who won a silver medal at the 2016 Olympics, is understood to be 50-50 to recover in time from his latest setback.

"Ruaridh pulled up a bit sore today so we're not 100 per cent sure how he'll be," head coach Eddie Jones said.

"We'll find out later tonight.

It's not the same injury.

He's just sore, so we'll find out about it."
