Unchanged Scotland Called For Calcutta Cup Clash With England

Gregor Townsend calls on referee to ensure England defence stay onside. Gregor Townsend has kept faith with the players who beat France and has named an unchanged Scotland team for Saturday’s Six Nations match with England at Murrayfield.

Townsend’s pack options have been bolstered with the Edinburgh prop WP Nel and the Glasgow lock Tim Swinson named among the replacements following injury. The Glasgow centre Nick Grigg is also on the bench for the Calcutta Cup game.
