Joe Marler has been recalled into the England squad, available to take on the Wallabies.

England coach Eddie Jones named a 35-man squad for the Australia week, with Marler straight into the mix after a suspension.

The front rower was initially set to miss both England's clash against Argentina and the Wallabies, before Harlequins appealed the suspension's end date, with the disciplinary committee bringing the date forward.

Mike Brown remains in the squad despite a heavy hit suffered against Argentina, while Ben Te'o will be in the squad until Wednesday, continuing his rehab on an ankle injury.

England bested the Pumas at Twickenham on Saturday, 21-8, but it was a frustrating performance for Jones, who lashed out watching on during the game.

Australia arrived in London on Sunday ahead of the blockbuster match with England, as they look to snap a four-game losing streak.

The Wallabies take on England on Saturday November 18, kicking off at 3pm local, Sunday 2am AEDT LIVE on beIN Sports and SBS.
