The England team to face Scotland in Saturday’s Calcutta Cup has been named with Steve Borthwick making five changes to the side that defeated Wales last time out.

Danny Care comes in for the injured Alex Mitchell and he’ll partner George Ford in the half backs while Ollie Lawrence, George Furbank, Dan Cole and Ellis Genge also come into the team. England have won both of their opening two Six Nations games but Scotland have the advantage in the Calcutta Cup in recent years with three wins in a row, and they’re hoping to make it four when they host them at Scottish Gas Murrayfield this weekend.

Furbank comes into the team ahead of Freddie Steward at full back with Tommy Freeman and Elliot Daly playing on the wings. The centre partnership sees Lawrence replace Fraser Dingwall to play alongside Henry Slade with Care and Ford making up the rest of the backs.

Ellis Genge, Jamie George and Dan Cole make up the front row with Joe Marler and Will Stuart dropping to the bench. The second row sees Mario Itoje partner Ollie Chessum with a back row trio of Ethan Roots, Sam Underhill and Ben Earl.

Marler and Stuart are among the replacements despite starting against Wales and they are joined by Theo Dan, George Martin, Chandler Cunningham-South, Ben Spencer, Fin Smith and Immanuel Feyi-Waboso.

And Borthwick said: “We’re pleased with the start we’ve made to our Guinness Six Nations campaign but know that a difficult test awaits us in Edinburgh against an in-form Scotland team.

“The atmosphere is always special for any Calcutta Cup match and I’m sure this weekend’s game at Murrayfield will be no different.

“This group of players are looking forward to the challenge on Saturday and to creating some very special memories.”

Full team: Furbank, Freeman, Slade, Lawrence, Daly, Ford, Care, Genge, George, Cole, Itoje, Chessum, Roots, Underhill, Earl

Replacements: Dan, Marler, Stuart, Martin, Cunningham-South, Spencer, Smith, Feyi-Waboso
