Uncapped full-back Freeman joins club-mates George Furbank, Courtney Lawes and Lewis Ludlam in the 34-man group.

“This is a young but very good, talented squad who have all earned their places. It is one of the most competitive squads I have ever picked,” said England boss Eddie Jones.

"Tonga always play a strong, physical game and Australia and South Africa have had extended periods together and will be a good challenge for us.

“Our aim each week will be to get better and better as we work towards the Rugby World Cup in 2023.”

The England squad will travel to Jersey on Monday, October 25 for a five-day training camp.

The camp will form part of England’s preparations for the Autumn Internationals in November, when they will host Tonga (Saturday, November 6, 3.15pm KO), Australia (Saturday, November 13, 5.30pm KO) and world champions South Africa (Saturday, November 20, 3.15pm KO). All matches will be live on Amazon Prime.
