Nowell retains England place for Scotland Six Nations match

First published in Sport

Cornwall's Jack Nowell has retained his place in Stuart Lancaster's England squad for this weekend's Six Nation's clash with Scotland at Murrayfield.

Nowell will earn his second cap alongside Luther Burrell, who also made his debut in Paris last week.

Lancaster had already hinted that he would stick with the same side that came within minutes of victory at the Stade de France.

The England boss also names an unchanged bench for the game, with Wasps prop Matt Mullan called in as 24th man.

England will be looking to avoid a third consecutive test defeat having lost to France, and before that New Zealand in November.

England team to face Scotland:

M Brown (Harlequins); J Nowell (Exeter), L Burrell (Northampton), B Twelvetrees (Gloucester), J May (Gloucester); O Farrell (Saracens), D Care (Harlequins); J Marler (Harlequins), D Hartley (Northampton), D Cole (Leicester), J Launchbury (Wasps), C Lawes (Northampton), T Wood (Northampton), C Robshaw (Harlequins), B Vunipola (Saracens).

Replacements: T Youngs (Leicester), M Vunipola (Saracens), H Thomas (Sale), D Attwood (Bath), B Morgan (Gloucester), L Dickson (Northampton), B Barritt (Saracens), A Goode (Saracens).
