Jones vows England will learn lessons from Scotland draw

Youngs made his worldwide debut off the bench against the Scots in 2010 at Murrayfield, on the wing, and this Saturday (March 16) makes his 85th appearance for the national side when they welcome a Scottish team looking to win their first match at Twickenham in nearly 40 years. 'He'll be ready by the World Cup.' That rather suggests Cokanasiga has already gone a long way to convincing the management that he has what it takes to be a star of the present as well as the future.

The third and final Six Nations tussle of the day starts at 5pm.

England will win the Six Nations title if they regain the Calcutta Cup and Wales fail in their Grand Slam bid against Ireland in Cardiff.

And it was slick passing and clever lines that opened England up in the 48th minute, the backs interchanging wonderfully until Graham jinked his way over in the left corner.

England's chief tormentor in last weekend's 57-14 win over Italy didn't even make it on the bench a week later.

When the coach revealed his line-up for the Calcutta Cup clash with Scotland at Twickenham on Saturday, which will serve as the Guinness Six Nations finale, Cokanasiga was nowhere to be seen, despite his man-of-the-match heroics against Italy last week.

"It is the last week of the tournament so it's exciting", Jones said.

"Scotland are a hard side - they are always at you, they play with a lot of enthusiasm and effort and have got a lot of attacking strings to their bow". For, without question, all of a sudden England's World Cup preparations have been significantly set back. I've got him on the right track. "The only thing we can control is how we play", he said. I've got some reasonable experience doing this.

England team to face Scotland: Elliot Daly, Jack Nowell, Henry Slade, Manu Tuilagi, Jonny May, Owen Farrell (captain), Ben Youngs; Ben Moon, Jamie George, Kyle Sinckler, Joe Launchbury, George Kruis, Mark Wilson, Tom Curry, Billy Vunipola.

In the forwards, prop Ben Moon and flanker Mark Wilson replaced Ellis Genge and Brad Shields, respectively.

Ben Youngs will be making his 85th England appearance to surpass the national record for a scrum-half held by Danny Care.

"It shocked us when they got a bit of momentum".

Scotland - 15 Sean Maitland, 14 Darcy Graham, 13 Nick Grigg, 12 Sam Johnson, 11 Byron McGuigan, 10 Finn Russell, 9 Ali Price, 8 Magnus Bradbury, 7 Hamish Watson, 6 Sam Skinner, 5 Ben Toolis, 4 Grant Gilchrist, 3 WP Nel, 2 Stuart McInally (c), 1 Allan Dell.
