Injury rules out Robshaw
England have been hit by the news skipper Chris Robshaw will miss the final Test against South Africa due to a cracked right thumb.
The 26-year-old Harlequins flanker had suffered a blow to the hand in the first Test in Durban, before making the problem worse with another heavy knock during the 36-27 second Test defeat in Johannesburg over the weekend.
And England head coach Stuart Lancaster confirmed that the forward would play no further part in the tour, which includes a match against the Northern Barbarians in Potchefstroom on Tuesday before the final Test in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.
Lancaster said: "Chris, as you would imagine, is devastated.
"He has led us superbly in the last seven internationals and been one of our standout performers.
"But the medical advice is that he should not play and we have to trust that expert opinion.
"Dylan Hartley will captain the side. He has been a key part of our leadership group and I know he will step up to the task on Saturday."
Robshaw added: "I'm absolutely gutted.
"I've been very proud and honoured to lead this group during the Six Nations and on this tour and it's a difficult way to end the season."
