England have called up front-row forwards Rob Webber and Henry Thomas to their squad for Saturday's opening autumn Test with Australia at Twickenham.

Bath hooker Webber, 27, is included as injury cover for Dylan Hartley who is struggling with an ankle problem. Sale prop Thomas, 21, is brought in as Bath's David Wilson has a calf injury.

Both players featured in the summer tour to Argentina. Webber scored in the second Test win in Buenos Aires, while former Thomas made his Test debut as a replacement in the first Test.
