England back-row Chris Robshaw will miss the Six Nations after he was ruled out for 12 weeks due to shoulder surgery.
Robshaw aggravated an existing shoulder problem in Harlequins’ defeat to Worcester on Jan. 1 and will now face an extended spell on the sidelines.
The news will come as a huge blow for Eddie Jones’ England as Robshaw started all but one Test in 2016, missing the one-off match against Wales in May.
Jones will now need to find a new blindside in a pack already hit hard by injury.
Get well soon Chris
