Tommy Taylor and Nick Schonert have been ruled out of England’s tour of Argentina due to injury, the RFU has announced.

Taylor has suffered knee ligament damage during a training session while Schonert has sustained a fresh hand injury, having only recently recovered from a hand operation.

Schonert’s Worcester team-mate Jack Singleton has been recalled into the squad to replace Taylor while Bristol’s Jamal Ford-Robinson has been called up for Schonert.

Singleton and Ford-Robinson were both involved in England’s recent camps in Brighton and Pennyhill Park and played against the Barbarians on Sunday.

Eddie Jones’ side head to Argentina for a two-Test tour next month.

The first match takes place on June 10 in San Juan before the follow up in Santa Fe a week later.
