Harlequins wing Lynagh, the son of Australia great Michael Lynagh, was included by coach Eddie Jones in an extended England training group for the first time in September.

But he was left out when veteran Australian boss Jones cut his England squad down for the year-end matches at Twickenham against Tonga, Australia and world champions South Africa to 34 players.

The 20-year-old Lynagh’s call-up into the England squad comes after the Wallabies asked about his possible availability.

Lynagh, who helped London club Harlequins win the English Premiership last season, is also eligible to play for Italy – his mother, Isabella, is Italian and he was born in Treviso, where his parents met when Michael was playing for the local club.
