Joe Worsley, the England and London Wasps flanker, is set to miss the Amlin Challenge Cup back-to-back clashes with Bayonne next month after tearing knee ligaments in last Saturday's Test against New Zealand.
The double Heineken Cup champion sustained the injury just one minute after the start of the Twickenham international. A scan has revealed that he suffered a "grade three medial collateral ligament" injury to his right knee and might not be able to play until the end of the Pool stages of Amlin Challenge Cup tournament.
According to the club, Worsley will see a surgeon to discuss the best possible management of his injury.
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
