Joe Cokanasiga dropped for Calcutta Cup clash

Go with the Joe Cokanasiga impressed against Italy

England's head coach, asked to assess the benefit of home advantage, given that the Scots haven't won there since 1983, quipped: '1883?

"Manu's future is looked after and we're really happy for him. I read up on the history of the Calcutta Cup and it's quite interesting", said assistant coach Wisemantel, referencing the 1995 film in which Mel Gibson plays 13th-century Scottish warrior William Wallace. He later said he didn't feel safe traveling by public transport. "Eddie has got into the history of it with us... when the first ever game was".

I want him to play 100 Tests for England - I don't want him to just play 10 Tests.

"Those records aren't in our minds at all", Scotland flanker Magnus Bradbury said.

"The massive improvement for us is in our mindset", he said.

A third Six Nations crown of the Jones era is the prize at stake on Saturday when England seek a victory that, combined with Welsh failure to complete the Grand Slam against Ireland.

A loss for Wales, however, opens the door for England to snatch the title.

England's chief tormentor in last weekend's 57-14 win over Italy didn't even make it on the bench a week later.

When the coach revealed his line-up for the Calcutta Cup clash with Scotland at Twickenham on Saturday, which will serve as the Guinness Six Nations finale, Cokanasiga was nowhere to be seen, despite his man-of-the-match heroics against Italy last week.

"It's the last week of the tournament so it's exciting".

"We want to be the best team in the world and we know we're not the best team in the world, but we've got an opportunity to show that we're the best team in the Six Nations". He'll be ready by the World Cup. 'He'll be ready by the World Cup.' That rather suggests Cokanasiga has already gone a long way to convincing the management that he has what it takes to be a star of the present as well as the future.

'We don't need to rush him.

"I've had reasonable experience in doing this and sometimes you let them go, and sometimes you've got pull them back a bit".

There were four changes in all for England, with Jack Nowell replacing Cokanasiga on the right wing and Henry Slade coming in for Ben Te'o as the center partner for Manu Tuilagi.

Ben Youngs will become England's most-capped scrumhalf in making his 85th appearance, one more than Danny Care on the all-time list. That meant Sean Maitland was at fullback and Byron McGuigan on the left wing.
