Former England captain Chris Robshaw will undergo a scan on Tuesday to know the extent of the shoulder injury that he sustained while playing for his Aviva Premiership side Harlequins in the clash against Worcester Warriors last weekend.

The 30-year-old suffered the blow at the start of the second half in the game which Worcester Warriors won 24-17.

Also the injury meant, Robshaw had to miss the two-day training camp in Brighton organised by England coach Eddie Jones for their preparations ahead of Six Nations 2017 tournament.

"Chris Robshaw will go for a scan to determine the extent of a shoulder injury sustained while playing for Harlequins against Worcester Warriors on New Year's Day," read a short Rugby Football Union statement.

England are already on a nervous wait on Leicester Tigers centre Manu Tuilagi, who sustained a knee injury during the Aviva Premiership defeat to Saracens on Sunday.
