Wood undergoes neck surgery


Northampton Saints and England flanker Tom Wood is "on the mend" after undergoing neck surgery.

Wood revealed after Saints' final Premiership match against Gloucester that he would be going under the knife to resolve a problem that ruled him out of England's tour of Australia.

The 29-year-old, who was overlooked by England head coach Eddie Jones for the Six Nations, revealed that the operation was a success.

"Incredibly humbled by all ur messages of support. Everything went to plan and I'm on the mend. Huge thank you to everyone @SpireBristolHos." he tweeted.

"I do somewhat regret betting the anesthetist he could put me out within a minute, think he gave me a few for luck."
