Harlequins wing Louis Lynagh and Northampton scrum-half Alex Mitchell have been added to England’s squad for Saturday’s match against Tonga.

Uncapped Lynagh, the son of Australia great Michael Lynagh, was selected in a training group in September but left out of Eddie Jones’ initial squad.

The 20-year-old’s inclusion comes after Australia last week expressed an interest in securing his services.

Mitchell replaces Bristol’s Harry Randall who has a hip flexor injury.

Lynagh’s call-up follows Anthony Watson’s ACL rupture, which has ruled the Bath back out of the autumn Tests.
