Calum Clark: injury doubt for England's tour of South America
England's medical team will assess the fitness of Northampton flanker Calum Clark on Sunday over fears he may have to miss the tour of Uruguay and Argentina due to an ankle injury.
Clark has already been ruled out of Saturday's Aviva Premiership final at Twickenham after limping off in Saints' semi-final victory over Saracens.
The 23-year-old was omitted from England's 2012 summer tour of South Africa and the autumn internationals that followed after being handed a record 32-week ban for breaking the arm of Leicester hooker Rob Hawkins.
This time it is injury that could rule him out and he faces a nervous wait to see if he is passed fit.
A shoulder injury in January meant Clark was unavailable for the whole of the Six Nations campaign but he was selected again for England's three-match tour of South America.
The tour begins with a match against a combined South American XV in Montevideo on 1 June before England face two Tests against Argentina.
