England’s George out for up to ten weeks

Date published: March 9 2016

England hooker Jamie George will miss the rest of the Six Nations and be out for eight to ten weeks with a bicep injury.

Exeter hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie is now set to take his place on the bench for this Saturday's games with Wales at Twickenham.

George, in excellent form for Saracens this season and when called upon by England, is now expected to be out of action until May after rupturing his bicep tendon in training on Tuesday.

Cowan-Dickie's one Test cap for England came in the Rugby World Cup warm-up match against France last August.
