Wallabies coach Dave Rennie has named a 35-player squad for the three Test series against England.

They are joined by Brumbies locks Nick Frost and Cadeyrn Neville along with Rebels prop Pone Fa'amausili.

Reds flyer Suliasi Vunivalu has also earned a call-up after strong performances following his return from injury.

Japanese-based trio Quade Cooper, Marika Koroibete and Samu Kerevi are the overseas inclusions after strong performances in the Spring Tour.

“The core of this squad is a group who have performed strongly for us over the last two seasons, while strong form in Super Rugby Pacific has been rewarded with a handful of new faces," Rennie said in a statement.

"The past two years have allowed us to build strong foundations as a group but there's no doubt that we have a lot more in us.

"We're looking forward to working hard and preparing as a group to put in performances that make our supporters proud against England next month."

The squad is comprised of 15 Brumbies, seven Queensland Reds, six Waratahs, four Melbourne Rebels and three from Japanese-based clubs.

The group will assemble on the Sunshine Coast from Thursday as they prepare for the three-Test series against Eddie Jones' team, with the opener scheduled at Optus Stadium in Perth on July 2.

The series will then move to Brisbane (July 9) before heading to Sydney (July 16) for the decider

All games will be shown LIVE on Stan Sport and Channel Nine, with tickets available atwallabies.rugby/tickets.
