Australia have called up Melbourne Rebels flanker Scott Higginbotham to their squad for their final two tour matches with Italy and Wales.

Higginbotham has been serving a two-game suspension after being cited for punching New Zealand captain Richie McCaw.

He will replace Rob Simmons who was banned for eight weeks for a tip tackle on France flanker Yannick Nyanga during Australia's 33-6 defeat in Paris.

Australia take on England at Twickenham on Saturday before facing Italy in Florence and then Wales in Cardiff.

Higginbotham has won 21 caps for Australia, scoring two tries against Wales in June and against South Africa in The Rugby Championship.
