England Rugby Captain Forced To Miss Summer Tour With Concussion

England captain Dylan Hartley has been ruled out of the summer tour of South Africa. The 32-year-old also missed a large chunk of the season in 2016 after twice suffering concussion.

Hartley sustained a delayed concussion after England’s defeat by Ireland at Twickenham in March and is understood to still be experiencing “good days and bad days” during his recovery.

His Northampton team-mate Rob Horne was forced to retire this week after suffering life-changing nerve damage to an arm during the Premiership game against Leicester.
