George Lowe of Harlequins races away from Kyle Eastmond of Bath

Neck injury: George Lowe

Harlequins have announced that centre George Lowe is out for the rest of the season due to a neck injury.

Lowe suffered the injury in the match with Saracens on 28th September.

The England Saxons centre injured his neck while making a tackle in the 15th minute of the match at The Stoop. He was replaced and taken to hospital for assessment. He was released, discharged and returned home.

Following further scans and guidance from specialists over the past four weeks, George has been advised not to play again this season.

Instead he will undertake a programme of treatment that aims to have him fit to return to action for the 2014-15 season.

George was educated at Epsom College and played for Cobham RFC from where he joined the Harlequins Academy. He played for the England Under 20s in the Junior World Championships in 2009 and was called into the England squad that toured South Africa in 2012.

He made his senior debut for Harlequins in 2008 and has since made 107 appearances during which he has scored 24 tries. George started at outside centre in Harlequins' three trophy-winning finals during the last three seasons - the Amlin Challenge Cup in 2011, the Aviva Premiership in 2012 and the LV= Cup earlier this year.
