England coach Stuart Lancaster has added six Saracens players to his squad for the summer tour of New Zealand.

Chris Ashton, Brad Barritt, Owen Farrell, Alex Goode, Billy Vunipola and Richard Wigglesworth have all joined up with the England touring party.

Lancaster had been waiting until after Saturday's Premiership final to confirm his squad for the tour of New Zealand and has subsequently added 16 players, with coming from Saracens and another eight from fellow finalists, Northampton Saints.

Fly-half Farrell, who was replaced in the second-half of Saturday's final at Twickenham, has been passed fit after injuring himself celebrating a try which was ruled out by Television Match Official Graham Hughes.
