Hill and Marchant ruled out of Argentina tour

  • England play the Barbarians on Sunday
  • You can still buy tickets, here

Paul Hill and Joe Marchant have been ruled out of England’s tour to Argentina in June through injury.

Hill, who has an ongoing neck injury, has not recovered in time for the two Test tour, and will remain with Northampton Saints for his rehabilitation.

Marchant arrived at the Lensbury-based fitness camp two weeks ago with soft-tissue irritation of his big toe, and following treatment, it has not settled sufficiently for him to be considered for selection.

Denny Solomona will stay with Sale Sharks this week to continue treatment after suffering a mid-foot sprain in Brighton last week.

He will be assessed at the end of the week to decide if he will rejoin the England camp and continue his rehabilitation.

England head coach Eddie Jones will announce his final 31-man squad travelling to Argentina on Monday, 29 May following the weekend’s Aviva Premiership Final and England's Old Mutual Wealth Cup match against the Barbarians.
