James Haskell undergoes toe surgery

England international James Haskell has undergone surgery to rectify an injury that could sideline him for six months.

The Wasps flanker required reconstructive work on his big toe after being hurt during England’s second Test victory over Australia in Melbourne last month.

Haskell posted a short video on social media of him recovering in hospital following surgery, and he tweeted: “I made it through the op! All went well. Foot Hurts like hell though.”

Haskell missed the third Test in Sydney as England claimed a history-making 3-0 series whitewash against the Wallabies, and he now looks likely to be unavailable for the autumn internationals at Twickenham in November when England tackle South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia on successive weekends.

Haskell, who has won 70 caps, was named man of the series in Australia as England continued their impressive winning run under head coach Eddie Jones.

Wasps said last week that Haskell faced a lay-off of between four and six months.
