George Ford has withdrawn from the England Rugby squad with an achilles complaint ahead of the game against Barbarians at Twickenham.

The Leicester Tigers fly-half suffered from the injury in the final weeks of the club's 2019/20 campaign, which saw him unavailable for the cancelled European Challenge Cup quarter-final against Castres at Welford Road. 

England have added Bristol Bears trio Ben Earl, Max Malins and Kyle Sinckler to the squad as it prepares for the game against the BaaBaas at Twickenham Stadium on Sunday (October 25, 2pm KO).
