England are likely to have the services of Bath winger Anthony Watson for the fourth round of the Six Nations clash against Wales to be played at Twickenham Stadium on 7th March.

Watson already missed the opening three games against France, Scotland and Ireland following calf injury but is set to link up with the training squad in Oxford.

With an injury to George Furbank, England coach Eddie Jones shifted Jonathan Joseph to wing and Elliot Daly to fullback but a possible return of Watson will boost the back three options.

Meanwhile, Mako Vunipola, who missed the game against Ireland as he moved to Tonga for family reasons is unlikely to be available for the clash against Wayne Pivac's men.

"Mako probably won't be back for Wales. He's gone home for family business," Jones said.

"Anthony's got to do a running session and if he gets through that we'll get him into camp."

England currently hold the second position in the Six Nations table with two victories from three games and have games against Wales and Italy left in the remainder of the tournament.
