Blow for England as Underhill is ruled out of Six Nations
England flanker Sam Underhill will miss the Six Nations after undergoing an ankle operation.
Underhill’s club Bath have confirmed the 22-year-old will be out of action for up to three months.
Underhill suffered damaged ankle ligaments during Bath’s victory against Leicester on December 30th.
It was initially thought Underhill had merely rolled his ankle but after seeing a specialist it was decided he needed an operation, ruling him out until mid-April.
