HOMEGROWN Worcester Warriors ace Ted Hill has missed out on the squad of 25 for England's 2020 Guinness Six Nations opener with France in Paris on Sunday (3pm).

Luke Cowan-Dickie, who returned to England for family reasons on Tuesday evening, will rejoin the squad tomorrow with ex-Warriors hooker Jack Singleton standing down from his earlier call-up.

Joe Launchbury, apprentice Alex Mitchell and Anthony Watson have travelled with the squad.

But Watson won’t be considered for selection due to a calf injury he was carrying before coming into camp.
