Jack Nowell is set to win his second England cap against Scotland this weekend after being named in the 23-man squad to travel to Edinburgh.

However, Exeter Chiefs teammate Tom Johnson has again been released back to his club.

Head coach Stuart Lancaster has named an unchanged squad for Saturday's match, with Gloucester winger Jonny May passed fit.

The starting XV and replacements will be named on Thursday.

Lancaster said: “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.

“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.”

England squad v Scotland, forwards: David Attwood (Bath), Dan Cole (Leicester), Dylan Hartley (Northampton), Joe Launchbury (Wasps), Courtney Lawes (Northampton), Joe Marler (Harlequins), Ben Morgan (Gloucester), Chris Robshaw (Harlequins), Henry Thomas (Sale), Billy Vunipola, Mako Vunipola (both Saracens), Tom Wood (Northampton), Tom Youngs (Leicester). Backs: Brad Barritt (Saracens), Mike Brown (Harlequins), Luther Burrell (Northampton), Danny Care (Harlequins), Lee Dickson (Northampton), Owen Farrell, Alex Goode (both Saracens), Jonny May (Gloucester), Jack Nowell (Exeter Chiefs), Billy Twelvetrees (Gloucester)
