Flood sweats on Six Nations after tip tackle

England out-half Toby Flood faces a nervous wait to see if he will miss part of the Six Nations championship after being cited for an alleged tip tackle.

Flood sent Worcester counterpart Andy Goode's head towards the ground in Leicester's 19-14 English Premiership win on Friday.

His case will be heard tomorrow and and the No 10 could face a substantial ban if found guilty. England's Six Nations opener at home to Scotland takes place on February 2.

Meanwhile, Conor O'Shea's Harlequins went back to the top of the Premiership with a bonus-point 31-26 victory over London Welsh. At the other end of the table, London Irish remain second from bottom, despite ending a run of six Premiership defeats when overcoming Gloucester 18-12 at Kingsholm.
