England coach Eddie Jones has included Wasps captain Joe Launchbury in the 25-man squad for the upcoming Calcutta Cup encounter against Scotland to be played on Saturday.

Launchbury missed the opening game of the tournament against France with a knee injury but now has replaced Charlie Ewels in the squad that will be in contention to face the Dark Blues.

Forwards: Luke Cowan-Dickie, Tom Curry, Ben Earl, Ellis Genge, Jamie George, Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Joe Launchbury, Courtney Lawes, Lewis Ludlam, Joe Marler, Kyle Sinckler, Will Stuart, Sam Underhill, Mako Vunipola.
