Sky Bet

Shane Geraghty has been ruled out of the rest of England's Six Nations campaign.

The 22-year-old, who plays either at fly-half or centre, broke a bone in his left hand playing for London Irish in their 21-16 Guinness Premiership defeat against Wasps on Sunday.

Geraghty has played once in this season's competition, against Italy - the only match England have so far won - however he was sin-binned minutes after coming off the bench.

Gloucester's Olly Barkley has been called up as his replacement, with the side to play France on March 15 due to be announced on Wednesday.
