Simon Zebo will miss the remainder of the Six Nations after suffering a broken foot during Ireland's defeat to England on Sunday.

Ireland wing Simon Zebo has been ruled out of the remainder of the Six Nations after breaking his foot during the defeat to England on Sunday.

The 22-year-old broke a bone in his foot just 10 minutes into his side's 12-6 loss to the Red Rose at the Aviva Stadium at the weekend.

Zebo, who was one of the star men during his side's opening win over Wales, will now miss Ireland's matches with Scotland, France and Italy, much to the dismay of coach Declan Kidney.

"He is going for surgery in the morning and will be out for about 10 weeks," confirmed Kidney.

The Munster man is likely to miss his side's Heineken Cup quarter-final match with Harlequins.
