At least five of England’s Six Nations heroes are going to miss out on selection for the British & Irish Lions according to The Telegraph.

It is understood that the omissions will include England’s play-making fly-half, George Ford, centre Jonathan Joseph, fullback Mike Brown, flanker James Haskell and lock Joe Launchbury.


Chris Robshaw is also expected to be omitted despite returning to full fitness while England captain Dylan Hartley may also miss out.

As reported by The Telegraph on Sunday, England prop Kyle Sinckler and centre Ben Te’o nevertheless do look likely to make the cut.
