Eorl Crabtree will be sidelined for England this autumn as he needs both shoulder and elbow surgery

Huddersfield prop Eorl Crabtree will miss England's autumn internationals against Wales and France after being told he needs to undergo shoulder and elbow surgery.

Scrum-half Danny Brough, Crabtree's Giants team-mate, is also a doubt as he awaits the outcome of a scan to assess the full extent of a groin tear he sustained during his side's 46-10 play-off defeat at Hull on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield winger Jermaine McGillvary is to undergo ankle surgery which will rule him out of the England Knights' Alitalia Cup campaign.
