Cornwall's Jack Nowell is the only Exeter Chiefs player to be retained in the England squad for the upcoming Six Nations Championship.
The Cornwall-born wing was one of three Exeter players initially selected when Eddie Jones announced his interim squad on January 13.
But the squad has now been cut down to 22 men with Nowell's Exeter team-mates Luke Cowan-Dickie and Sam Hill among ten players released to rejoin their clubs.
Truro-born Nowell scored three Six Nations tries in 2015, including a double against France in a 55-35 win last March. He also featured in England's Rugby World Cup squad this Autumn.
The Exeter Chiefs will be taking on Bordeaux tomorrow (16 January) in the European Champions Cup.Read the full story ›

While Rugby World Cup fever has got many of us gripped for at least the next month - the sport is being played by more young people than ever across the South West.
That's partly down to a scheme aimed at getting more boys and girls at secondary schools to take up the game.
Three different schools in Torbay have come together to develop their rugby as part of the All Sports Programme.
Exeter Chiefs' new lock-forward Geoff Parling has kept his place in the England starting team to face Wales on Saturday in the crunch Rugby World Cup match at Twickenham.
Parling partnered Courtney Lawes in the scrum for the opening match of the tournament last Friday against Fiji but was replaced shortly after time by Joe Launchbury.
Despite an injury to Jonathan Joseph there is still no place in either the starting XV nor the bench for Chiefs centre Henry Slade. Bath's rugby league convert Sam Burgess has been given the nod instead.
Exeter Chief's rugby players will be eagerly awaiting the announcement of England's Rugby World Cup Squad this afternoon.
Henry Slade, Jack Nowell and Geoff Parling are tipped to get into Stuart Lancaster's 31-man squad after an impressive last season which saw the team narrowly miss out on the Premiership play-offs.
An international rugby superstar who once made a shock appearance for Barnstaple's second team has been killed in a car crash.
Jerry Collins, 34-year-old former captain of New Zealand's All Blacks, died in a crash in southern France between his car and a bus early this morning, along with his wife. Their three-month-old daughter is in a critical condition in hospital.
In 2007 Collins was staying with friends in North Devon. A chance meeting with Barnstaple's director of rugby meant he ended up coaching the team's young players one night and playing for the second team at Newton Abbot the next day - in a game they were winning until it was abandoned due to an injury.
The All Black later wore his red-and-white Barnstaple socks in an invitational against then World Champions, South Africa.
Barnstaple Rugby described Collins as a "wonderful man" with a "heart of gold" in an emotional tribute on Facebook today.
