Wasps fly-half Danny Cipriani has been listed as a full-back in England's training squad for Sunday's match against the Barbarians.

Cipriani is among 35 players named, including his club-mates Nathan Hughes, Elliot Daly, Dan Robson and Joe Launchbury.

Wasps were knocked out of the Premiership play-offs by Saracens on Saturday.

The 30-year-old has played at fly-half for the majority of his rugby career.

His last appearance for England was as a replacement full-back in a World Cup warm-up match against France in August 2015. He will be playing for Wasps' Premiership rivals Gloucester next season.

England play at Twickenham Stadium in the Quilter Cup at 15:00 BST on Sunday.

Ireland centre Bundee Aki - who was due to captain the Barbarians side - has been ruled out with an ankle injury while former New Zelanad player Charles Piutau is sidelined after suffering an Achilles tendon strain and Sale fly-half AJ MacGinty has been withdrawn by his club.

Coach Pat Lam has added Scotland fly-half Finn Russell, New Zealand centre Malakai Fekitoa, Newcastle and Fiji centre Josh Matavesi, his Falcons colleague - flanker Nili Latu - and Connacht prop Denis Buckley to his squad.
