Exeter Chiefs' Jack Nowell has kept his place in England's Six Nations team for Saturday’s Calcutta Cup clash against Scotland at Murrayfield.

Head Coach Stuart Lancaster has opted for an unchanged line-up.

Lancaster said: “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. Scotland will be hugely motivated by their defeat in Dublin and, as we found two years ago, Murrayfield is a tough place to play.”
