England prop David Wilson set for neck surgery

London: England prop David Wilson requires surgery on a neck injury which will rule him out of the rest of the Six Nations championship, coach Stuart Lancaster announced on Thursday.

The 29-year-old Bath tighthead will miss England`s remaining four fixtures but will return in time for England`s World Cup training camp.

"David has seen the specialist and will be out for the Six Nations," Lancaster said.

"He`s booked in for an operation tomorrow (Friday) that will relieve his nerve impingement. He`ll be out for 10-12 weeks."

Earlier, Lancaster named an unchanged team for Saturday`s clash against Italy at Twickenham.

Lancaster has kept faith with the same starting XV and bench that beat Wales 21-16 in Cardiff in the Championship opener last Friday.
