England number eight Ben Morgan looks set to miss the entire RBS 6 Nations after breaking his leg in Gloucester's Aviva Premiership victory over Saracens on Friday night.

Morgan suffered the injury in the second half at Kingsholm and while no timeframe for his return has been given by his club, he is unlikely to play any part in the Championship. The injury also casts a shadow over his possible participation in this autumn's Rugby World Cup in England.
