England flyhalf Owen Farrell has been ruled out of the third Test match in Hamilton against New Zealand due to a knee injury.

Farrell suffered a strain to the medial ligament in his left knee and will remain with the squad for the remainder of the tour before returning home for further assessment and treatment by Saracens in conjunction with the England medical team.

"The knee has been scanned and there is a strain there," said England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster.

"It's disappointing for Owen as he was desperate to play in the final Test but such is his character that he is already working on his rehab and still contributing to the tour."

"Fortunately we have three other fly halves to call on and we'll make that selection call over the next few days.

"The squad trained well this morning and we will narrow down selection over the next 24 hours following the game this evening."
