Cirpriani left out, but Ben Morgan is back in due to England's back row 'crisis'.

Nathan Hughes had his 4 week ban increased to 6 weeks after tweeting "What a joke" during his hearing, so he would only have been available for the last Test. Hence he's been dropped, and Big Ben is back in.

There's a experimental feel about the squad, with Sale's Tom Curry, Exeter's Ben Moon and Worcester's Nick Schonert and 'apprentice*' Ted Hill named. Manu Tuilagi's back, though.

Dylan Hartley and Owen Farrell named co-captains, presumably so Faz can take over when Hartley's banned. Wink

Eddie's under pressure and down on power - could be a defining series for him a year out from RWC19. Shocked

Forwards:
Tom Curry (Sale Sharks), Charlie Ewels (Bath Rugby), Jamie George (Saracens), Dylan Hartley (Northampton Saints) co-captain, Alec Hepburn (Exeter Chiefs), Ted Hill (Worcester Warriors)*, Maro Itoje (Saracens), George Kruis (Saracens), Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints), Zach Mercer (Bath Rugby), Ben Moon (Exeter Chiefs), Ben Morgan (Gloucester Rugby), Michael Rhodes (Saracens), Nick Schonert (Worcester Warriors), Brad Shields (Wasps), Kyle Sinckler (Harlequins), Elliott Stooke (Bath Rugby), Sam Underhill (Bath Rugby), Harry Williams (Exeter Chiefs), Mark Wilson (Newcastle Falcons)

Backs:
Chris Ashton (Sale Sharks), Mike Brown (Harlequins), Danny Care (Harlequins), Joe Cokanasiga (Bath Rugby), Elliot Daly (Wasps), Nathan Earle (Harlequins), Owen Farrell (Saracens) co-captain, George Ford (Leicester Tigers), Alex Lozowski (Saracens), Jonny May (Leicester Tigers), Jack Nowell (Exeter Chiefs), Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs), Ben Te'o (Worcester Warriors), Manu Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers), Richard Wigglesworth (Saracens), Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers)

And vice versa, presumably!

I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.
