England coach Jones drops Cokanasiga to look after him

Leicester Tigers players, young and old, have paid tribute to scrum-half Ben Youngs ahead of the global becoming England Rugby's most-capped No.9 in the final fixture of the 2019 Six Nations against Scotland at Twickenham.

"It's a great achievement but I know for him the most important thing is to win on Saturday", said Jones, who famously threw a bag of candies at Youngs when he first took over, saying he was too heavy.

Boss Jones said: "It is the last week of the tournament so it's exciting".

Coach Eddie Jones named his team on Thursday, recalling Jack Nowell to the right wing and moving Manu Tuilagi, who scored two tries in last week's 57-14 win, to inside centre to accommodate the return of Henry Slade at 13.

Only five days earlier the 18-stones Bath battering ram was named man for the match for swatting aside Italian defenders easily in a performance that Sir Clive Woodward declared evoked memories of Jonah Lomu.

Farrell, the sole captain in the absence of joint-leader Dylan Hartley, also made two mistakes that resulted in Scotland tries as England lost control of the match.

"He's a young player and we don't need to rush him, we need to bring him through carefully, he's got a long career ahead of him".

Avenging last year's bitter defeat at Murrayfield was now England's aim and as they ran in four tries to build a 31-0 lead inside half an hour, they were on track to mark their last competitive match before the World Cup with an ominous statement.

A caller to 911 said that as many as seven shots were heard, but police have not reported how many times Cali was hit. At a 2008 bail, a prosecutor said Cali was seen "as a man of influence and power by organised crime members in Italy".

Starting number nine Ben Youngs will become England's most capped scrum-half on Saturday, overtaking Danny Care with his 85th outing. "It will be a fascinating finish too, with the three teams that can win it and we are playing against one of our most traditional foes in Scotland", said Jones.

"With young players, particularly in this environment, you've got to look after them", England's head coach said.

Natasha Hunt darted through from a quick tap penalty before Breach got onto Emily Scarratt's kick forward for her second and England's bonus point.

For Scotland, they will take great pride in that second half performance, having looked dead and buried at half-time.

"I don't know how to feel - am I elated we got back in the game or am I gutted we got into a winning position and didn't make it?"

"When we went to Doncaster and Sandy Park the support was fantastic, here at the home of English rugby I don't think there is a better or more special place to win a Grand Slam championship".

"But if we impose our game on Scotland, it'll be pretty tough for them".
