Flanker Vicky Fleetwood makes her first Women’s Six Nations start from the season from the England team to face Scotland at Twickenham on Saturday.

Else where prop Hannah Botterman and next row Poppy Cleall are restored into the starting XV.

Wasps FC Ladies’ Amy Cokayne along with Gloucester-Hartpury’s Natasha Hunt come in at hooker and Scrumhalf.

England are looking to complete a Grand Slam after bonus-point victories within their first four matches of the campaign.

After beating Italy in the front of a record crowd at Exeter’s Sandy Park last weekend, Simon Middleton’s side will play their final-round game after their guys counterparts have shot on Scotland at Twickenham.

England won 43-8 once the teams last met from the 2018 championship and Scotland have suffered a miserable campaign, losing four games thus far.

However, Middleton has told his team they are set for a tough afternoon.

“Scotland is going to probably soon be ultra-competitive this particular weekend. They are a hard-working side and you will be looking to finish their championship on a high” He said.

“I would like to see us perform at a higher level for an extended time against Scotland – should we deliver this I’m convinced we’ll get the effect we desire.”

England: McKenna; Breach, Scarratt, Harrison, Smith; Daley-Mclean, Hunt; Botterman, Cockayne Bern, P Cleall, A Scott, Beckett, Fleetwood, Hunter (c).

Replacements: Davies, Cornborough, S Brown, O’Donnell, Packer, Riley, Burford, E Scott.
