Bath's Ollie Devoto has been been included in Eddie Jones' new look England squad for the upcoming 6 Nations which starts next month.

The 22 year old can play full-back, centre or fly-half and came through the club's academy system, making 34 appearances for the senior side since his debut last season.

Fellow team mates Henry Thomas, George Ford, Jonathan Joseph and Anthony Watson are also named in the squad.

England face Scotland at Murrayfield in their opening game of the Six Nations on February 6th.

Gloucester flanker Matt Kvesic has been been included in Eddie Jones' new look England squad for the upcoming 6 Nations which starts next month.

The openside flanker has been on the fringes of the England squad for a number of seasons but has won just two caps since his debut in 2013.

Despite Gloucester's mixed season, the 23 year old has been one of the stand out performers for his club and with Eddie Jones looking to inject power and pace into a side that performed so poorly at last year's World Cup the hard tackling Kvesic has made the initial squad of 33.

Stuart Lancaster has named winger Jack Nowell in his starting side to face Ireland at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday.

The Cornishman will replace Jonny May after his superb form for Exeter Chiefs.

Nowell failed to make the squad for England's first two Six Nations matches despite having played most of the tournament last year.

However after inspiring the Chiefs to a win over Harlequins last weekend, Lancaster could not overlook the winger's scintillating form.

This game could be be key in deciding the championship with England and Ireland the only two unbeaten sides.

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.”
