Leicester hooker Nic Dolly and Northampton Saints backrow Lewis Ludlam have both been injured, with Dolly almost certainly set to miss the tour of Australia. Wasps secondrow Joe Launchbury has opted out to allow himself to recover from a number of recent ‘knocks’.

An RFU statement reads: “Nic Dolly (knee) and Lewis Ludlam (thumb) were injured in their club matches this weekend while Joe Launchbury is taking some time to recover from knocks received in recent games.

“Bath’s Ewan Richards has been called up for his first involvement in a senior men’s camp, along with Saracens’ Nick Isiekwe and Gloucester’s Jack Singleton.”

The wider England squad has met today in Richmond for a three-day camp as they begin preparations for next month’s home game against the Barbarians and their tour of Australia in July.
