England have been dealt a blow ahead of the autumn internationals after flanker Tom Croft was ruled out for six weeks with a knee injury.

The Leicester flanker missed most of last season after undergoing a knee reconstruction and, following Friday night’s 22-16 win over Harlequins, Tigers head coach Richard Cockerill confirmed he had gone under the knife again.

“Crofty won’t be fit for next week,” he said. “He has had a screw taken out of the knee that was irritating the joint. That was yesterday.

“He is probably six weeks away from playing. It’s disappointing for him and us.”
