England are braced for yet another injury blow with World Cup-winning centre Mike Tindall set to miss the entire RBS 6 Nations Championship. The Bath star has been told he needs surgery on his right foot, and he is unlikely to play again until April.

Tindall's latest medical bulletin could also threaten his Lions tour prospects in New Zealand this summer. A stress fracture had already ruled 26-year-old Tindall out of England's opening Six Nations games against Wales and France, but head coach Andy Robinson hoped he might be fit for later matches in the tournament.

However, Tindall, England's vice-captain during their autumn Tests this season, is now poised to follow Will Greenwood and Richard Hill in sitting out the whole competition, while question marks remain about injured fly-half Jonny Wilkinson's Six Nations prospects.
