Six Nations: England earn draw after sensational Scotland comeback

England train as Eddie Jones prepares to name team to face Scotland

Youngs made his worldwide debut off the bench against the Scots in 2010 at Murrayfield, on the wing, and this Saturday (March 16) makes his 85th appearance for the national side when they welcome a Scottish team looking to win their first match at Twickenham in nearly 40 years.

"We're right at the beginning", said No 8 Hunter.

Owen Farrell was in agreement and the captain did not shy away from taking his share of the blame, having been charged down for Scotland's first try, intercepted for their fifth, the equaliser, and almost cost England with another controversial challenge in the final quarter. "It's another game. We're defending the Calcutta Cup, which is massive for us".

Taking the Fiji-born giant's place on the right wing is Jack Nowell, who has recovered from a shoulder stinger injury, while Ben Te'o is present as replacement three-quarter cover.

It was England's 14th Grand Slam triumph and regains the title they lost narrowly to France previous year.

Zion Williamson propels Duke to ACC crown
Best team in the country? "It accentuated the gulf between Williamson and every other prospect in college basketball". They gave Duke a scare on Thursday night even with Tyus Battle out and with Zion Williamson going full godmode.


"You've got to keep players' feet on the ground".

A week after being compared to Jonah Lomu by Sir Clive Woodward in response to a bulldozing man-of-the-match display against Italy, Cokanasiga is unable to even secure a place on the bench for the game with Scotland tomorrow. I recall (as Australia coach) looking after guys like Matt Giteau and George Smith in a similar way. 'As soon as you tell them they're not in the team, you get this blank look.

"You need to bring young players through carefully, sometimes you let them go and sometimes you pull them back a bit", he said.

"I'm sure Joe won't be sad".

Jones has reverted to his first-choice midfield with Manu Tuilagi and Henry Slade paired in the centres outside Farrell, resulting in Ben Te'o's demotion to the bench as threequarter cover.

Jones makes four changes to the starting XV that lined up against Italy last week.

Starting number nine Ben Youngs will become England's most capped scrum-half on Saturday, overtaking Danny Care with his 85th outing.

The responsibility of being sole captain and chief playmaker is a "massive ask" for Owen Farrell, said former worldwide Paul Grayson after England's rollercoaster 38-38 Six Nations draw with Scotland. Other people decide that.

Joe Cokanasiga may have been left out of England's matchday squad against Scotland this weekend, but Eddie Jones says the winger will be an important part of his World Cup plans.

'It is a great lesson for us and the hardest lessons are the best lessons.
