Attwood retains place in England squad

Dave Attwood has retained his place on the bench for England as Stuart Lancaster names an unchanged squad for Saturday's Calcutta Cup clash against Scotland at Murrayfield, kick-off 17.00.

The 23 on duty at Stade de France will travel to Edinburgh along with Matt Mullan (London Wasps) as 24th man.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "It's good to be able to select the same players and they are all determined to put last week's result behind us and build on the performance. Scotland will be hugely motivated by their defeat in Dublin and, as we found two years ago, Murrayfield is a tough place to play."
