Six Warriors named in Scotland squad to face England

Gregor Townsend has named his Scotland team to face England in this Saturday’s final Guinness Six Nations Test at Twickenham Stadium – live on ITV.

The Scots travel south in defence of the Calcutta Cup trophy they lifted for the first time in ten years at BT Murrayfield last year, with a victory in west London escaping the Scots in each of the biennial times of asking since 1983.

Sam Johnson comes into the side to partner Nick Grigg at centre, while Ali Price keeps his place at scrum-half.

Fraser Brown, Jonny Gray and Adam Hastings have been named on the bench.

Saturday's game is the last of this year's Six Nations, with the Warriors returning to action next Saturday evening when they welcome the Cheetahs to Scotstoun - tickets available HERE.
