ENGLAND head coach Stuart Lancaster has conceded it is "unlikely" Mike Tindall will play again for England.

Tindall has been named in the Barbarians squad to face England at Twickenham on May 27, his first appearance at the home of English rugby since he captained the side against Scotland in March last year.



Since then his star has waned due largely to a troubled World Cup campaign which led to a change of management regime and Lancaster’s arrival in office.
