The former Preston Grasshoppers star, who attended Hutton Grammar School, was called-up by head coach Eddie Jones for the autumn internationals, which also includes matches against Fiji, Italy and Australia.

However, the Sale Sharks full-back will not figure in the opening game after being left out of the final 23 for the clash against the Springboks tomorrow.
