Six Northampton Saints players have been chosen in England’s 42-man squad to tour South Africa this summer.

Lee Dickson, Chris Ashton and Ben Foden will be among the backs while Dylan Hartley, Phil Dowson and Paul Doran Jones have a chance of playing in the pack.

England coach Stuart Lancaster has named 13 uncapped players in his squad but has also opted to recall troubled Harlequins scrum-half Danny Care.
