Jonny May and Elliot Daly have defied expectations to be in contention for England's autumn series opener against Argentina on Saturday.

The wings were expected to miss the Twickenham showdown after sustaining injuries but have been included in a 26-man squad that will be trimmed to a match-day 23 tomorrow morning.

May suffered a minor hamstring injury during training in Portugal last week and was expected to miss out against the Pumas, but his recovery has progressed well and he could be involved.

Daly damaged knee ligaments on Champions Cup duty for Wasps last month and after being ruled out of the Tests against Argentina and Australia, he is now poised to start on the wing.

Anthony Watson is set to start on the other wing, Mike Brown completing the back three, with May offering bench cover unless he is ruled out, in which case Semesa Rokoduguni is present to step in.

Meanwhile, Scotland captain John Barclay admits he had concerns over the nature of his head injury after six weeks out. The back-row was knocked out in late September by his international colleague Magnus Bradbury in a game against Edinburgh, and has only just made his comeback.

The 31-year-old, who is set to captain his country in the upcoming autumn Tests in the absence of Greg Laidlaw, played more than an hour for the Scarlets as they beat Benetton at the weekend after he was finally given the all-clear to return to action. However he admitted his prolonged absence left him anxious ahead of his return.

"I was a little rusty, which was a confidence thing as well (as physical)," he said. "Before the game I was a little anxious just because of the nature of having a concussion and having symptoms for as long as I did. It gave me peace of mind that everything is fine and that was great for me as an individual."
