London Irish playmaker Shane Geraghty has been ruled out of the rest of England's RBS 6 Nations campaign with Gloucester's Olly Barkley called up as his replacement.

Utility player Geraghty broke a bone in his hand during the Exiles' defeat against Wasps on Sunday.

It is the latest in a long line of injuries that have interrupted Gergahty's progress since making a huge impact on his debut as a replacement against France in the 2007 Championship.

Barkley, originally omitted from Martin Johnson's EPS squad, comes in for the game against France at Twickenham on Sunday.
