England have added Josh Beaumont to their training squad bound for Portugal as injury cover for Courtney Lawes.

Lawes was a late withdrawal from the Northampton team that defeated Gloucester on Friday night because of a knee injury and according to Saints is expected to miss at the least the first match of the Old Mutual Wealth Series this autumn.

Beaumont, who plays lock and number eight for Sale, is the son of former England captain Bill Beaumont. The 24-year-old will travel to the Algarve along with Lawes on Sunday night ahead of a week-long training camp.

"Beaumont will join up with England at their training base in Portugal on Monday," a Rugby Football Union statement read.
