Jonny May is fully prepared for the task that awaits him at Murrayfield this weekend, even if it means breaking his nose for the second game in succession.
May lasted just eight minutes on his Six Nations debut in Paris last Saturday, suffering a blow against team-mate Mike Brown's knee, but notes that it won't affect his performance.
"I've broken my nose in the past and I've had a few knocks on it recently. It was waiting to go almost. I will probably get a smack on the nose early in the Scotland game, but it's sore most of the time anyway. It gets hit in most games!"
May adds: "In terms of trying to protect me, he made the decision that I wouldn't go back on because he was worried that I might have fractured by cheekbone or eye socket. At least we're aware of what it is this time. I'm not worried about it."
May has been named in Lancaster's starting XV for the trip to Edinburgh, where both Scotland and England are searching for their first victories of the Six Nations campaign.
