Freddie Burns returns to the 33-man England squad following his two appearances for England Saxons to prepare for Saturday’s Six Nations match against Scotland at Murrayfield.

Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints) suffered a bruised cheekbone but no structural damage and will be available for selection.
