Moody in race to face All Blacks

Lewis Moody
Moody replaced Steve Borthwick as England captain

England captain Lewis Moody is a doubt for the first autumn Test against New Zealand after he was injured playing for Bath against Gloucester on Friday.

England play the All Blacks on 6 November, but the 32-year-old flanker is likely to be out for four weeks after suffering bruising to his eye.

"He took a serious knock," said Bath head coach Steve Meehan.

"We'll make sure he receives the best attention to get him back on the field as and when he's ready."

Moody was hurt following a collision with Gloucester full-back Charlie Sharples early in the second half and required several minutes of treatment on the pitch before going off.


Bath's Lewis Moody was picked by England coach Martin Johnson to replace Steve Borthwick as captain for the summer tour of Australia after the Saracens lock suffered a knee injury.

Moody then became the second captain, after Martin Johnson in 2003, to lead England to a Test match victory over the Wallabies on Australian soil.

Borthwick, 30, was captain for Johnson's first 20 Tests in charge but the Saracens lock was demoted to the second-string Saxons squad in July.
