New Zealand flanker Richie McCaw has been ruled out of tomorrow’s Test against England at Twickenham.
McCaw received a blow to his head during last weekend’s win over Ireland at Lansdowne Road but was named in the XV to face England on Tuesday.
However, he has now been left out as a precaution and Chris Masoe will replace him in the team.
