England head coach John Mitchell has made two changes to the starting line up for the Grand Slam decider against France to be played in Bordeaux on Saturday.

Cokayne returns from suspension to replace Lark Atkin-Davies, who is sidelined with an ankle injury in front row that also has Hannah Botterman and Maud Muir.

Sale's Morwenna Talling retains her place at second row with Rosie Galligan ruled out with a broken thumb and Abbie Ward starts on the bench.

"Our focus has remained on our process and how we best prepare for the next opposition," head coach Mitchell said.

"We now have an exciting challenge in France which we're all looking forward to.

"France will be buoyed by the fact they're at home but we're actually looking forward to embracing that challenge," England head coach John Mitchell said.

"It's another full-capacity stadium, which gives us energy too. That's what drives the girls - they want to play in front of full capacity."

England have four wins from as many games as they look to win their third successive Grand Slam and a sixth successive Women's Six Nations title.

England XV: 15 Ellie Kildunne, 14 Abby Dow, 13 Megan Jones, 12 Tatyana Heard, 11 Jess Breach, 10 Holly Aitchison, 9 Natasha Hunt; 1 Hannah Botterman, 2 Amy Cokayne, 3 Maud Muir, 4 Zoe Aldcroft, 5 Morwenna Talling, 6 Sadia Kabeya, 7 Marlie Packer (c), 8 Alex Matthews.

Reserves: 16 Connie Powell, 17 Mackenzie Carson, 18 Kelsey Clifford, 19 Abbie Ward, 20 Maddie Feaunati, 21 Lucy Packer, 22 Emily Scarratt, 23 Sydney Gregson.
