Tom Wood set to miss Six Nations opener
Thursday 19 January 2012
Tom Wood has been ruled out of England's first two RBS 6 Nations
fixtures with a toe injury, the Rugby Football Union have confirmed.
The Northampton flanker will miss England's games against Scotland and Italy after being told he needs to wear a protective boot on his left foot for the next four weeks.
Wood, who had been considered a leading captaincy candidate, will still attend England's pre-Six Nations training camp in Leeds next week.
