Leicester hooker Tom Youngs has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a back injury.
Youngs was left out of England's squad at the start of the Six Nations. The BBC first reported the news on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old, who has 31 caps, last appeared for Leicester in the Champions Cup against Stade Français back in January.
He has now undergone surgery and will play no further part in Leicester's Premiership and Champions Cup campaigns.
