Injured winger Yarde to miss rest of season

England international Marland Yarde is set to miss the remainder of the Premiership season after suffering a serious knee injury while playing for Sale Sharks.

The winger ruptured his medial collateral ligament and his anterior cruciate ligament, while also dislocating his left knee, in his side’s 20-7 win over Newcastle Falcons.

Yarde took to Twitter to confirm the news, with the 26-year-old – who made his England debut in 2013 – expected to be out for a minimum of six months.

“Unfortunately [the injury is] true but so easily could have been worse,” he posted. “I will continue to stay positive and be back stronger and better for this experience!

“I have great people around me who will help me through this tough time and watch the team reach its potential and drive up the table.”

The serious injury is a huge blow for the former London Irish and Harlequins player ahead of the Rugby World Cup in September 2019.

Yarde last played for England in 2017 but was called up by head coach Eddie Jones to take part in a training camp in May.

Sale sit 11th in the Premiership table, with Saturday’s triumph over Newcastle their second victory in six league outings. News wire is powered by opta
