9. Danny Care (England)
84-caps-worth of experience that makes him most unlucky to miss out.
1. Val Rapava-Ruskin (England)
A player that was also included in the initial training squad after a powerful season with Gloucester, but was not helped by Joe Marler’s return to the international set-up.
2. Dylan Hartley (England)
He is the obvious player here, but it is an injury that has ruined his chances of going to Japan rather than anything else.
