Ben Foden certain to miss England's autumn internationals
Thursday 20 September 2012
Ben Foden will miss England's QBE autumn internationals after it was confirmed he requires surgery on damaged ankle ligaments.
The Northampton full-back suffered the injury playing against Bath last Friday night and he is expected to be sidelined for between 10 and 12 weeks.
Mike Brown and Alex Goode both started Tests at full-back on the summer tour of South Africa and will be the leading contenders for the 15 jersey.
England open their autumn campaign against Fiji before tackling Australia, South Africa and New Zealand on consecutive Saturdays at Twickenham.
