‘Leaked England team news’ has surprise captain and Jack Nowell starting

The England XV has been reportedly leaked ahead of Saturday’s Six Nations opener against Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Head coach Eddie Jones will announce his Test squad tomorrow but the players were told the team before this afternoon’s training session at the squad’s base.

Scotland stunned England a year ago by winning at Twickenham for the first time in 38 years and will hope to secure bragging rights once more.

BBC One HD is the place to watch in the UK, with the team on air from 4pm.
