England's Mako Vunipola has been ruled out of the remainder of the Guinness Six Nations
with an ankle injury.
Vunipola limped off in the 44th minute of Sunday's rout of France
and watched the rest of the game with ice strapped to his left ankle.
'It is obviously very disappointing to lose Mako at this stage as he is an important player for us but it does provide an opportunity for the team to grow,' head coach Eddie Jones
Eddie Jones' side have Wales, Italy and Scotland to come in their quest to land a Grand Slam but Vunipola is certain to miss all three games with the injury that will see him sidelined for 10 weeks.
The 28-year-old will now return to his club side Saracens where he will begin his rehabilitation programme.
The injury will come as a severe blow to England, with Vunipola having started in a huge win in Ireland at the start of the campaign as well as the victory over France at Twickenham on Saturday.
