Chris Robshaw is rated "borderline" for England's Six Nations opener against Italy

Chris Robshaw and Mike Brown are doubts for the NatWest Six Nations opener against Italy as England’s injury concerns continue to escalate.

Robshaw has a back problem and Brown is being troubled by blurred vision, leaving head coach Eddie Jones to rate the Harlequins duo as “borderline” for the trip to Rome on Sunday week.

“Robshaw has spent a lot of time in the pool, but he’s borderline to play rugby. Brown is doing light skills but he’s borderline too,” Jones said.
