England are currently reviewing a number of injuries to squad members and have called up several replacements.
Toby Flood is being reviewed today by the England medical team for a knock that he took on his head playing for Leicester Tigers in the Guinness Premiership and Shane Geraghty has been called up as a precaution.
Olly Morgan has also been included as cover for Delon Armitage who is recovering from his rib injury sustained in England’s match against Ireland.
Dan Hipkiss and Simon Shaw have both been ruled out of the Scotland game, and they are replaced by Mike Tindall and Tom Palmer respectively.
Dan Ward-Smith is being reviewed today regarding an MCL knee injury he sustained at the weekend and Leeds flanker, Hendre Fourie, has been called up as a precaution. The 30-year-old has just been awarded the Gatorade Performance of the Month award for his efforts against Wasps in February, and has been spearheading Leeds’ efforts to avoid relegation in recent weeks.
The team for Saturday will be announced at 12pm tomorrow, and we’ll have it on The Rugby Blog as soon as we know it.
