Vickery joins England's mounting injury list

8:15 am on 22 October 2009

The experienced prop Phil Vickery has joined the England rugby team's mounting injury list as he's to undergo a neck operation that'll rule him out of the game for at least three months.

Fellow prop Andrew Sheridan will be off the scene for up to four months with a shoulder injury.

Six other first frontline players are also on the sidelines including half the England backline.
