England forwards coach Steve Borthwick insists Eddie Jones' side are ready for any Scottish gamesmanship in the build-up to Saturday's Six Nations Calcutta Cup clash at Murrayfield.

Visiting Edinburgh has traditionally seen bagpipers slow down the team bus among other attempts to cause discomfort, such as interfering with the warm-up and switching off the electrics to the changing room.

"We prepare for these situations in a couple of ways. Off the field we try to put different situations to players and try to discuss different scenarios," Borthwick said.

"On the field it might be instances in games like sin-binning and how players deal with that. We like to make the players adapt, it's what we do in training."

England's Six Nations title defence resumes at the venue where Jones' reign opened in 2016 and since that victory, 23 more have followed with last year's loss to Ireland the only blemish.

"From that point two years ago there has been a lot of growth in different areas," Borthwick said.

"There has been plenty of development. I wouldn't put a number on how much more there is to come because that starts putting limits on the players."
