England's Joseph back for 6 Nations rugby


Centre Jonathan Joseph is back in the England team to face Scotland in rugby's Six Nations clash at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday (Sunday AEDT).

Joseph was left out of the squad that beat Italy two weeks ago as coach Eddie Jones experimented with his midfield but reclaims the No.13 jersey from Ben Te'o, who drops to the bench.

No.8 Billy Vunipola is named among the replacements, having recovered from a knee injury.

In two other changes announced by Jones, Jack Nowell will start on the right wing and Ben Youngs at scrum-half. Anthony Watson, also back from injury, is on the bench, leaving no place for Jonny May.

The pack is unchanged but Billy Vunipola comes onto the bench after his quicker-than-expected recovery from a knee injury.

ENGLAND (15-1):

Mike Brown, Jack Nowell, Jonathan Joseph, Owen Farrell, Elliot Daly, George Ford, Ben Youngs; Nathan Hughes, James Haskell, Maro Itoje, Courtney Lawes, Joe Launchbury, Dan Cole, Dylan Hartley (capt), Joe Marler.

Res: Jamie George, Mako Vunipola, Kyle Sinckler, Tom Wood, Billy Vunipola, Danny Care, Ben Te'o, Anthony Watson.
