Stuart Lancaster has named an unchanged England squad to travel to Edinburgh for their RBS 6 Nations match against Scotland on Saturday.

Gloucester Rugby wing Jonny May was a doubt earlier in the after fracturing his nose early on in Paris, but the 23 year-old has been passed fit take his place in the 23-man group, which will return to Pennyhill Park on Wednesday evening.

The starting XV and replacements will be named on Thursday morning and Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said the players who performed so well in the last-gasp 26-24 defeat to France deserve the chance to put it right against Scotland.

“We were disappointed by the result against France but very proud of many aspects of the performance and we want to give the same 23 the opportunity to build on that against Scotland,” he said.

“All the squad have been excellent in training over the last two days and I know those going back to play for their Aviva Premiership clubs will be determined to put a marker down for the subsequent matches.”
