INJURY UPDATE: Joe Marchant and Paul Hill have been ruled out of England's tour to Argentina next month through injury. 

Marchant arrived at the Lensbury-based fitness camp two weeks ago with soft-tissue irritation of his big toe. Following treatment it has not settled sufficiently to be considered for selection.

Paul Hill, who has an ongoing neck injury, has not recovered in time and will remain with Northampton Saints for his rehabilitation. 

Denny Solomona will stay with Sale Sharks this week to continue treatment after suffering a mid-foot sprain in Brighton last week. 

He will be assessed at the end of the week to decide if he will rejoin the England camp and continue his rehabilitation.

Eddie Jones will announce his 31-man squad travelling to Argentina on May 29 following the weekend's Premiership Final and England's match against the Barbarians.
