England have been warned by coach Stuart Lancaster they need to be on their best behaviour during their tour of Argentina and Uruguay.
'They are representing their country,' Lancaster said as the squad left for Buenos Aires. "We'll talk about what being a good England player is on and off the field. We will also take an opportunity to understand a bit more about the history and the culture of Argentina as a rugby nation."
Lancaster had to make late changes with the withdrawal of Leicester lock Ed Slater and Northampton flanker Calum Clark. Uncapped Wasps-bound lock Kearnan Myall was added the squad heading to Uruguay and Argentina after the pair failed to recover from knocks picked up during the Aviva Premiership play-offs.
England will now take 31 players to Uruguay for Sunday's tour match in Montevideo ahead of the two-Test series against the Pumas.
"It's unfortunate for both Calum and Ed that they won't be able to join up with England this summer," Lancaster said. "But I'm sure they will be back and pushing for places next season.
"Kearnan did well in a good team performance against the Barbarians and now has a great chance to continue his progress with us on tour. It means we travel with one player less than originally selected but we have lots of options in the second row and back row to cover for that."
