INJURY UPDATE: England flank Chris Robshaw miss the upcoming Six Nations tournament after he was ruled out of action for three months with a shoulder injury.

Robshaw will undergo surgery on his left shoulder on Monday to repair an injury sustained in a Premiership match against Worcester Warriors on New Year's Day.

He is expected to be out of competitive action for around 12 weeks.

Robshaw's absence will be a blow to Eddie Jones' plans for the Six Nations.

The England coach has a number of players already on the sidelines, which includes props Joe Marler and Mako Vunipola.

James Haskell and George Kruis are also concerns - while Billy Vunipola is a long-term absentee.

Haskell was forced off the field during Wasps' 22-16 victory over Leicester Tigers on Sunday after getting a bang on the head after a powerful tackle on Leicester's Freddie Burns.

He'll have to pass all return to play protocols before being cleared to play for Wasps or England.
