Bevan Rodd, an uncapped sale prop, was also called into England's squad for Australia to face the isolating Joe Marler.

Rodd, 21 years old, was born in Scotland and has represented England at the age-grade level. A senior cap would commit Rodd to Eddie Jones' team.

England did not return any new positive Covid-19 results during their most recent tests.

Marler, who was on the bench during Saturday's win against Tonga, was positive for Covid Monday evening.

After a result that was later revealed to be false positive, Captain Owen Farrell did not win the victory against Tonga.

Last week, a member of England's backroom staff was also positive.

After Marler's positive testing, it was announced that all 34 England players would be in camp for the entire week.

Rugby Football Union stated that the move would "enhance Covid resilience of team's boundary".
