England include 13 rookies for tour

STUART LANCASTER has named 13 uncapped players in the England squad to tour South Africa next month.

Danny Care, James Haskell and Ugo Monye return to the 42-man panel alongside a slew of novice players including Leicester's second-choice hooker Tom Youngs, who only converted to the position from centre three seasons ago and spent the last two years in the second tier with Nottingham.
