Owen Farrell and Jonny May have withdrawn injured from England’s training camp ahead of the Autumn Nations Series.

Saracens fly-half Farrell (concussion) and Gloucester wing May (elbow) suffered injuries playing in the Premiership over the weekend, as did London Irish back Henry Arundell (foot), who will travel to Jersey but will be restricted to rehab work.

In their places, Sale Sharks centre Tom Roebuck has been called up to the England squad for the first time, while Newcastle Falcons wing Adam Radwan and Exeter centre Henry Slade are also included.

Arundell – who made a huge impression featuring for England in their summer Test-series vs the Wallabies in Australia – does make the trip.

Experienced campaigner May, who suffered a suspected dislocated elbow on Friday night, would appear a huge doubt for November’s Tests.
