Rugby: Clark ruled out of Six Nations

Calum Clark in action for Northampton

In Rugby Union there's been a big blow for Northampton Saints and England today after flanker Calum Clark confirmed he needs a shoulder operation.

The 23-year-old was injured in the weekend Heineken Cup defeat against Glasgow and has said he'll be out of action for the foreseeable future.

As well as being a crucial stage of the season for Saints, it also means that Clark is almost certain to miss the whole of the Six Nations championship which begins next month.
