Ruaridh McConnochie has been ruled out of England's World Cup warm-up match against Wales in Cardiff through injury.

A post on the official England Twitter account said: "Ruaridh McConnochie has been withdrawn from the squad today due to a minor muscle strain and will be replaced on the right wing by Anthony Watson."

It is the second time in the space of six days that injury has prevented the 27-year-old from making his England debut.

McConnochie was due to play in the opening fixture of the build-up to Japan 2019 against Warren Gatland's men last weekend but was withdrawn due to a hip problem.

The Bath wing is a sevens specialist who won a silver medal with Great Britain at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
