Five Saints in unchanged England squad

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Late heartbreak denied the side in Paris, but having rallied so well to come back from 3-16 down to lead in the second half, head coach Stuart Lancaster has given the selection another chance. That means further starts for try scoring debutant Luther Burrell as well as fellow Saints Dylan Hartley, Courtney Lawes and Tom Wood.

Scrum-half Lee Dickson is again among the replacements in Edinburgh.

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