London — Captain Owen Farrell and hooker Jamie George will miss England’s final autumn Test against SA on Saturday due to injuries sustained in last weekend’s 32-15 win over Australia, the Rugby Football Union said on Monday.     

Farrell suffered an ankle injury that forced him off in the second half while George hurt his knee and did not take to the field after halftime.

Gloucester duo Harry Elrington, an uncapped prop, and hooker Jack Singleton were added to the squad on Monday while prop Joe Marler will join on Friday after completing his 10-day Covid-19 isolation period.
