Harlequins flanker Chris Robshaw will miss the upcoming Six Nations Cup.

England flanker and ex-captain Chris Robshaw has been ruled out of the Six Nations and  he would be sidelined for three months following shoulder surgery on Monday, according to his club.

He had been expected to miss the opening game after aggravating an existing shoulder problem. Nevertheless, Harlequins said in a statement: “Chris Robshaw will undergo surgery on his left shoulder today to repair an injury sustained in the match against Worcester Warriors on New Year’s day.”

“He is expected to be out of competitive action for around 12 weeks.”
