Ex-England head coach Sir Clive Woodward was especially impressed by the hookers reaction.
Well done Dylan , selection is never easy at any level – important to treat both with equal humility , sometime it goes with sometimes not https://t.co/kPOXbGvCaN

Social Reaction to Hartley’s absence
No Dylan Hartley, Joe Launchbury, George Ford or Mike Brown. Waiting patiently for the Eddie Jones pointless rant #LionsNZ2017
