Denny Solomona and Sam Underhill are among 15 uncapped players named in England's squad for their June tour to Argentina.

Rugby league convert Solomona, who qualifies for the RBS 6 Nations champions on residency grounds, and back row prospect Underhill feature in a 31-man party that is missing Danny Cipriani.

Head coach Eddie Jones has opted against resting those senior players who have been overlooked by the British and Irish Lions, retaining Dylan Hartley as captain and selecting the likes of Chris Robshaw, James Haskell and Mike Brown.
