England Saxons have called up Adam Thompstone, Dan Robson and Kieran Brookes for this weekend's clash with Scotland A in Glasgow.

Thompstone was Leicester's top try-scorer last season whilst Gloucester scrum-half Robson has been in excellent form this term.

The call-ups are the first for former London Irish wing Thompstone and Robson - Newcastle prop Brookes made his Saxons debut in 2011 in the Churchill Cup record 87-0 win against the USA.

The trio replace Northampton prop Tom Mercey (knee), Exeter centre Sam Hill (hamstring) and Harlequins centre Matt Hopper (rib).

Bath winger Semesa Rokoduguni rejoins the squad having missed the weekend's 14-8 defeat to Ireland Wolfhounds at Kingsholm because of injury. If he plays he will become the first serving soldier since the days of Tim Rodber and Josh Lewsey.

Exeter's Dave Lewis drops out of the squad and Bath wing Anthony Watson has been called into the full England squad.

Saxons squad:

Forwards: Kieran Brookes (Newcastle), Nathan Catt (Bath), Calum Clark (Northampton), Sam Dickinson (Northampton), Dave Ewers (Exeter), Jamie George (Saracens), George Kruis (Saracens), Charlie Matthews (Harlequins), Elliott Stooke (Gloucester), Luke Wallace (Harlequins), Alex Waller (Northampton), Dave Ward (Harlequins), Scott Wilson (Newcastle)

Backs: Freddie Burns (Gloucester), Elliot Daly (Wasps), Rob Miller (Sale), Dan Robson (Gloucester), Semesa Rokoduguni (Bath), Charlie Sharples (Gloucester), Joe Simpson (Wasps), Henry Slade (Exeter), Adam Thompstone (Leicester)
