Saracens star Maro Itoje will require surgery after fracturing his right hand, which rules him out of England's November Tests.

The second-row injured his hand during Saracens’ 44-26 win over Scarlets on Saturday and has been ruled out of action for six weeks.

Mark McCall, Saracens Director of Rugby, said: "For any team to lose a player of the ability of Maro is a blow and he will be missed through the autumn for both Saracens and England," McCall said. 

"What’s now important for Maro is his recovery and we look forward to his return later this season."
