England have been forced to send Exeter Chiefs hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie home from their tour of New Zealand so that he can have further assessment on a knee injury.

Cowan-Dickie jarred his knee in training and England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said,"It's unfortunate for Luke. "

"He has been great over the last three weeks and I am sure he will have benefitted from being involved in this environment.

"Unfortunately he has not been able to take a full part in training and it's the right thing for him to go back to Exeter and have further assessment."

"We have four other hookers so we are well covered in that position and we will not be bringing anyone else out."
