Double whammy.

England pair Joe Launchbury and Joe Marler have withdrawn from their squad for the Guinness Six Nations in a massive blow for boss Eddie Jones.

Lock Joe Launchbury is out through injury, with a fibia stress fracture, and prop Joe Marler has withdrawn for personal reasons. Charlie Ewels and Tom West will join the tournament squad, marking West’s first England senior call-up.
