Scotland selection news

Head Coach Gregor Townsend has reselected the starting line-up from Scotland’s round two win over France (32-26) for this Saturday’s Calcutta Cup clash with England at BT Murrayfield Stadium (kick-off 4.45pm) – live on BBC.

The Scots fought back from a ten-point deficit on two occasions and scored 12 unanswered points in the final quarter to post their first win of the 2018 NatWest 6 Nations Championship, with the two-try showing rewarded with reselection for the staring XV.

There are, however, three changes to the bench with fit-again prop Willem Nel (Edinburgh Rugby) and lock Tim Swinson (Glasgow Warriors) – both of whom returned to the squad this week – named among the replacements in place of Jon Welsh (Newcastle Falcons) and Ben Toolis (Edinburgh Rugby).

Centre Nick Grigg is the only change among the backs replacements as a reward for his consistency of performance for Glasgow Warriors, highlighted in his man-of-the-match winning performance for the club in their bonus-point win over Cheetahs last weekend.

England selection news

England Head Coach Eddie Jones has made one change to his starting line up to play Scotland on Saturday at BT Murrayfield (kick-off 4.45pm) - live on BBC.

Number 8 Nathan Hughes (Wasps) returns to the side for the first time this year, following a knee injury he picked up in December, while squad regulars Joe Launchbury and captain Dylan Hartley reach national team milestones

Launchbury is set to reach a half-century of international appearances while Hartley becomes the red rose's second most capped men's player of all time.

It will be Hartley's 92nd cap and will see him surpass Jonny Wilkinson on 91 caps with only Jason Leonard ahead of him on 114.

Joe Marler (Harlequins) is named as a finisher following his suspension.
