Sale Sharks' Henry Thomas will train with the England squad ahead of Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations match against Scotland at Twickenham Stadium (4pm, live on BBC One).

The prop has been called up to the team’s training base at Pennyhill Park as temporary injury cover for London Irish prop Alex Corbisiero, who remains at London Irish for treatment on his knee.

Harlequins wing Ugo Monye will also train with the squad while Gloucester Rugby fly half Freddie Burns stays at his club for treatment on his knee injury.

England Saxons will meet up in Newcastle tomorrow morning ahead of their match with Scotland A at Kingston Park on Friday, February 1 (8pm, live on SkySports 2 HD). Lock Shaun Knight has also returned to Gloucester Rugby for treatment on a knee injury.
