Tighthead Wilson to face Scotland

Bath Rugby cornerstone Davey Wilson has been named in the England matchday squad to face Scotland at Twickenham this Saturday.

In a squad that sees Billy Twelvetrees making his debut at inside centre in place of the injured Manusamoa Tuilagi and Joe Marler replacing Alex Cobesiero (knee), Rec crowd favourite Wilson will be looking to add to his tally of 22 caps after an outstanding series of performances for Bath.

Speaking ahead of the weekend, England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "We are happy to stick with the team that did so well against New Zealand, especially in light of the fact that they have all been in good form for their clubs since then.

"There were some very tight calls, with some experienced players coming back into contention, and I am sure the bench will have a significant impact on the game.

"We can't wait to get back to Twickenham and hopefully experience the same atmosphere as the autumn when the crowd was superb. It means a lot to the players to have such support in the ground and watching on television."

We all wish Davey the very best.

Allez Bath!!
