England change 3 and Scotland 1 for Six Nations match

Farrell is expected to be fine but, either way, England are now in slightly edgy mode.

Eddie Jones' unbeaten side produced their worst half under the Australian last time before finally seeing off Italy 36-15 and there's little doubt that unless they up their game considerably could come unstuck against the Scots, but I simply can't see it.

But they must start the match well.

"I think he'll be OK but we've got plenty of back-ups so it's not a worry".

England is attempting to equal the Tier 1 world record for consecutive Test victories, now 18 matches and held by New Zealand.

Vunipola had been pencilled in for a start but the evidence of two days of training persuaded Jones that he will be better deployed as a replacement after only making his comeback from a three-month lay-off on Sunday.

Scotland captain John Barclay on taking on England who are bidding to match New Zealand's record of 18 consecutive Test wins: "We kind of feel like the expectations are more on England". The selection of the big man alongside his brother Mako on the bench, while ominous on paper, is a further incentive to Scotland to throw absolutely everything they can muster at England early on.

Centre Jonathan Joseph is back in the England team to face Scotland in the Six Nations on Saturday, while number eight Billy Vunipola is named among the replacements after recovering from a knee injury. Dan Cole 4. Joe Launchbury 5. "Ben Te'o can play 12, he's an exceptional player, so there's no risk for us". Given Jonny May and Henry Slade are out of the match-day 23, with Bath's Anthony Watson poised to feature for the first time since last summer's Australian tour, there is no disputing England's strength in depth even if a sickness bug suddenly descends on the camp between now and kick-off.

They were the only three changes to the starting XV that overcame Italy 36-15 at home almost two weeks ago.

"I'm not anxious about what Scotland does - all I'm anxious about is us. I don't need to tell you what the answer was".

"The players are keen when they get their hands on the ball to express themselves at Twickenham".
