England have to wait on prop Cole; BRIEFLY.

ENGLAND will hope to have a clearer picture over whether Dan Cole will be available for the summer tour to New Zealand.

Cole has been ruled out for the remaining three games of the RBS 6 Nations with a bulging disk that is pinching a nerve - an injury that first came to light during a gym session last week.

No date has been set for the British and Irish Lions tighthead prop's return, although that is expected to change on Tuesday when he visits a specialist for a second opinion.

"Dan's certainly out of the Six Nations and probably won't be back until towards the end of the season," England head coach Stuart Lancaster said. "Whether that includes the end-ofseason play-offs and the New Zealand tour we'll have to see."
