Twelve weeks out for Attwood

Bath and England have suffered an injury setback after second-row Dave Attwood was ruled out for up to twelve weeks with a neck problem.

The 28-year-old, whose physicality has been a major plus point for club and country over recent seasons, will subsequently miss the 2016 Six Nations.

Attwood has played seven times for Bath this term because of the injury, with BBC Points West reporting that he will have surgery to repair a bulging disc.
