The England rugby squad are set to meet up at Pennyhill Park on Monday afternoon ahead of the QBE International against Argentina at Twickenham on Saturday.

England go into the game on the back of a 20-13 win over Australia in their opening Autumn International last weekend.

Coach Stuart Lancaster added Bath's Anthony Watson to the squad on Sunday - the full-back is already an U20 international and has been called up to gain top-level experience.

Lancaster said: "We are bringing Anthony Watson into camp because we want to take a look at him in the same way that we have done in the past with others outside the Senior or Saxons squads such as Joe Launchbury.

"Anthony is a member of the Under-20s squad and is playing well for Bath so this is a good opportunity to give him a taste of this environment."

Prop Alex Corbisiero and second row Geoff Parling are expected to be available to face Argentina after missing the game against Australia due to injury.

Sky Sports News will be with Lancaster and members of his squad as they begin their preparations this afternoon.

England squad - Forwards: David Attwood (Bath Rugby), Dan Cole (Leicester Tigers), Alex Corbisiero (Northampton Saints), Tom Johnson (Exeter Chiefs), Dylan Hartley, (Northampton Saints), Matt Kvesic (Gloucester Rugby), Joe Launchbury (London Wasps), Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints), Joe Marler (Harlequins), Ben Morgan (Gloucester Rugby), Geoff Parling (Leicester Tigers), Chris Robshaw (Harlequins), Henry Thomas (Sale Sharks), Billy Vunipola (Saracens), Mako Vunipola (Saracens), Rob Webber (Bath Rugby), David Wilson (Bath Rugby), Tom Wood (Northampton Saints), Tom Youngs (Leicester Tigers)
