Uncapped Bath fullback Anthony Watson has been called into the England training squad ahead of Saturday's Test against Argentina at Twickenham.
Watson, 19, was a member of the England Under-20 team which won the Junior World Cup in the summer.
"We're bringing Anthony into camp to take a look at him," said coach Stuart Lancaster. "He's playing well for Bath so this is a good opportunity to give him a taste of this environment."
"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 [current England second row] Joe Launchbury."
Watson, who moved to Bath from London Irish over the summer, was shortlisted for the 2011 BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year.
