England have been dealt another savage injury blow with the news that Joe Launchbury will miss the entire QBE series of autumn internationals with a neck problem.

Launchbury is suffering from nerve irritation that requires six to eight weeks of rest and rehabilitation, ruling him out of the Tests against New Zealand, South Africa, Samoa and Australia.

“It’s disappointing but it’s important for Joe, England and Wasps that he has the appropriate recovery period. We are confident he’ll be back in the new year,” head coach Stuart Lancaster said.
