(Reuters) - Wasps hooker Alfie Barbeary has been given his first England call-up after being included in the 33-man squad for Sunday's Autumn Nations Cup final against France.

The 20-year-old made an immediate impact when he scored a try on his Premiership debut from the bench against Worcester Warriors in August and then scored a hat-trick on his first start, against Leicester Tigers in September.

He has won three England Under-20 caps and was part of his country's 2019 World Rugby Under-20 Championship squad.

Joe Marchant and Jacob Umaga have returned to the squad after injury while Jonathan Joseph has withdrawn with a calf problem.
