The Rugby Football Union (RFU) confirmed the 28-year-old had ruptured the medial collateral ligament in his left knee, bringing an end to his tournament.

Youngs will undergo a further assessment with a surgeon later this week, but the RFU said he could be sidelined for up to four months.

Coach Eddie Jones called up Saracens' Richard Wigglesworth as a replacement, with England facing Wales at Twickenham on Saturday.

The news is also a huge blow to the Tigers, who are struggling in the bottom half of the Premiership.
