“We are really excited about this game.” – Head coach Eddie Jones.

Nathan Hughes starts at number eight as England make one change for Saturday’s Calcutta Cup match against Scotland at Murrayfield.

Hughes replaces Sam Simmonds in his first appearance of the Six Nations after recovering from a knee injury, with the rest of the XV unchanged from the side that beat Wales.

Hughes has made a swift recovery from knee ligament damage, and is fit to start after a conditioning crash-course in England camp over the past few weeks.

“We will need to be very tough and relentless in our defense to keep the pressure on his Scottish team.”
