Leicester Tigers players, young and old, have paid tribute to scrum-half Ben Youngs ahead of the worldwide becoming England Rugby's most-capped No.9 in the final fixture of the 2019 Six Nations against Scotland at Twickenham.

Cokanasiga was a standout performer on his full tournament debut as England overpowered Italy, but the Bath wing does not even make the bench on this occasion as Jack Nowell returns.

There were four changes in all for England, with Jack Nowell replacing Cokanasiga on the right wing and Henry Slade coming in for Ben Te'o as the center partner for Manu Tuilagi.

"Finn Russell is an exceptional player at 10 and they have got some pace on the outside so we are going to have to defend really well against them".

"We just feel it's right for him not be involved in matchday squad but he'll still learn from being around the squad".

"He's a young player and we don't need to rush him, we need to bring him through carefully, he's got a long career ahead of him". I don't need to reveal my selection plans for the future but I do know he'll be ready for the World Cup.

Jones has reverted to his first-choice midfield, with Manu Tuilagi and Henry Slade paired in the centres.

Love Island star Mike Thalassitis known as 'Muggy Mike' found dead
My heart is with your family. "I'm shocked and extremely saddened to hear reports of the passing of [Mike Thalassitis]". While Tyla Carr, who was coupled up with Mike during the show, said "I can't believe the call I've just had".

Subs: 16 Luke Cowan-Dickie, 17 Ellis Genge, 18 Dan Cole, 19 Brad Shields, 20 Nathan Hughes, 21 Ben Spencer, 22 George Ford, 23 Ben Te'o.

Starting number nine Ben Youngs will become England's most capped scrum-half on Saturday, overtaking Danny Care with his 85th outing. "There's no physical difference out there at all", Jones said of his side's final competitive game before the World Cup begins in Japan in September.

"With young players, particularly in this environment, you've got to look after them", England's head coach said.

If Ireland secure a bonus-point victory over Wales and England fail to score four tries in a win over Scotland, the two teams would be level on points at the top of the Six Nations table.

Whatever happens, England will have had a far better Championship after losing their last three Six Nations matches to finish fifth last season.

"The massive improvement for us is in our mindset", said Jones", whose side would have been going for a Grand Slam themselves but for a second-half collapse during a 21-13 loss to Wales in Cardiff. We probably allowed them to play a bit too much. We've experienced this at least three times in 12 months, where we've taken control of a game, let our foot off the gas and then been unable to get control of it back.

For Scotland, they will take great pride in that second half performance, having looked dead and buried at half-time.
