England and Leicester Tigers flanker Tom Croft will miss the Six Nations and the domestic season with a knee problem.

England will have to make do without the services of Tom Croft for next year's Six Nations tournament.

The Leicester Tigers flanker has been forced on the sidelines with a knee ligament injury that he picked during the weekend's Aviva Premiership opener against the Worcester Warriors.

The 27-year-old is also expected to miss the entire domestic campaign with the complaint.

Croft also missed a large majority of last season because of a neck injury, although he did recover in time to represent the British and Irish Lions in Australia earlier this year.
