Moody eyeing Six Nations return

LONDON, January 21 – England skipper Lewis Moody has given an upbeat assessment of his fitness, saying he expects to recover from a knee injury in time for the crucial Six Nations match against France next month.

Moody, who damaged ligaments in his his right knee playing for Bath at the weekend, was initially expected to miss England’s three opening matches in the championship, which kicks off on February 4.

However the 32-year-old flanker is confident he will return in time for the showdown with France at Twickenham, and revealed he would return to duty earlier if allowed.

"I’ll be back for that third game against France, fighting fit, raring to go," he told the Daily Telegraph.

Asked about the match against Italy at Twickenham a fortnight earlier, Moody added: "It’s probably not in the physios’ minds (to return for that game). But it is in mine."
