AUSTIN HEALEY flew to Australia last night as World Cup injury cover.
England have summoned the 51 times capped Leicester back following injuries to Josh Lewsey and Iain Balshaw.
Wasps full-back Lewsey is nursing a hamstring problem that ruled him out of yesterday's 28-17 quarter-final victory over Wales in Brisbane.
Balshaw, meanwhile, suffered a sprained ankle during last week's win against Uruguay and has also experienced soreness in his knee.
Healey, who played for Leicester against Wasps on Saturday, missed out on head coach Clive Woodward's original 30-man World Cup squad.
Healey is expected to arrive in Sydney in the next 24 hours to join the England party.
