Jack Singleton’s recall to the England squad lasted little more than 24 hours after head coach Eddie Jones named the 25 who will travel to Paris to take on France in the opening game of the Six Nations.
The hooker had been called up to cover Luke Cowan-Dickie after he had returned home for family reasons.
The Exeter Chiefs man has now returned, however, meaning the 23-year-old Harpenden star has been "stood down".
There is a place in the 25 though for three other former Harpenden St George's pupils as Maro Itoje, Owen Farrell and George Ford are all included.
In addition, Joe Launchbury, apprentice Alex Mitchell and Anthony Watson have travelled with the squad although Watson won't be considered for selection due to a calf injury he was carrying prior to joining the camp.
