Rugby Betting: Alex Corbisiero could be out for season due to injury

Worries that prop Alex Corbisiero could end up missing the entire Six Nations forced England to call on Henry Thomas, and rugby betting fans everywhere are very concerned over the prop’s fitness.
On Wednesday, Corbisiero, who is a huge favourite with many fans that enjoy making a rugby bet, went through a procedure to clear out a “loose body” in his knee and Brian Smith, London Irish director of rugby, would be surprised if he is available to play within 10 weeks, and the player’s fans are knocking on wood.
Rugby betting fans learned that England coach Stuart Lancaster’s initial prognosis from was that Corbisiero would not be able to play in the first two games, but Smith is afraid that it could take much longer, and that this season he might not even play again.
“Unfortunately for Corbs he had further surgery. The information our medical team have been given is that it is likely to be a 10-week injury,” Smith said.
“I’d like to think he could get back on the park for us before the end of the season. There are still major question marks about that. He has a significant injury and he needs to be managed well.”
Rugby betting fans found out that Thomas, Sale front-rower, will train with England at their Pennyhill Park base before Saturday’s Six Nations opener at Twickenham against Scotland.
Ugo Monye, Harlequins back, will also train with the squad while Gloucester’s Freddie Burns stays with his club for treatment on a knee injury.
Prop Shaun Knight withdrew from the England Saxons squad as he must also return to Gloucester because of a knee injury, and this has many rugby betting fans concerned.
On Monday, the Saxons assemble in Newcastle morning before their match on Friday with Scotland A at Kingston Park, and many fans that enjoy making a rugby bet can’t wait to see what will happen on the pitch when this match gets underway.
