Northampton Saints wing George North will not play for Wales against England today in the Six Nations after failing to recover from a leg injury.

The 24-year-old was named in the original starting XV, but has failed a late fitness test.

He will be replaced by Alex Cuthbert who scored two tries in the Six National title decider between the two sides in Cardiff four years ago.

Norwich City manager Alex Neil and Ipswich Town winger Tom Lawrence have missed out on the monthly awards in The Championship.

Neil was up for the manager award for January, while Lawrence's form had seen him nominated for the player prize.

However, both were overlooked with Reading's Jaap Stam being named Manager of the Month and Leeds United striker Chris Wood winning Player of the Month.

Outgoing England cricket captain Alastair Cook said he wouldn't be doing the team or their fans justice if he continued in the role.

The Essex star resigned from the role yesterday (Monday February 6) after a record 59 tests since 2012.
