England unchanged for Scotland
February 6, 2014
England want to get their championship campaign back on track against Scotland
Stuart Lancaster has made no changes to the team ahead of Saturday's Calcutta Cup clash with Scotland at Murrayfield.
England fell to a 26-24 loss to France in their Six Nations opener and despite injury worries over Jonny May and Courtney Lawes, Lancaster has named an unchanged 23-man squad.
"It's good to be able to select the same players and they are all determined to put last week's result behind us and build on the performance," Lancaster said. "Scotland will be hugely motivated by their defeat in Dublin and, as we found two years ago, Murrayfield is a tough place to play."
Loose-head Matt Mullan will travel to Edinburgh as 24th man.
Mike Brown, Jack Nowell, Luther Burrell, Billy Twelvetrees, Jonny May, Owen Farrell, Danny Care; Joe Marler, Dylan Hartley, Dan Cole, Joe Launchbury, Courtney Lawes, Tom Wood, Chris Robshaw (captain), Billy Vunipola
Replacements: Tom Youngs, Mako Vunipola, Henry Thomas, Dave Attwood, Ben Morgan, Lee Dickson, Brad Barritt, Alex Goode.
