Six Nations: England drop Cokanasiga as Jones rings changes for Scotland

Six Nations: England drop Cokanasiga as Jones rings changes for Scotland

A week after being compared to Jonah Lomu by Sir Clive Woodward in response to a bulldozing man-of-the-match display against Italy, Cokanasiga is unable to even secure a place on the bench for the game with Scotland tomorrow.

"If you look at our tournament, apart from a poor 30 against Wales and a poor 40 against Scotland, we've had a pretty good tournament".

"He'll feature very strongly in our plans for the future, but we just feel this week that Jack Nowell is our best player in that position".

The hosts thought they had scored again, in the 19th minute, but TV replays showed Ben Youngs had knocked on.

So you pick a Test where they're playing on a flat track, bat them at six, let them get runs, then you quietly build them up.' With the World Cup just six months away, Jones added: 'I don't need to fast-track him.

"We've got a plan in place for him, a good plan in place for him, he'll be ready by the World Cup". Manu Tuilagi was seen at Pennyhill Park but did not train with the forwards.

Ben Te'o drops to the bench, with Jones opting for a more traditional midfield balance of guile and strength following last week's power-packed duo.

In total there are four changes in personnel to the XV that battered Italy 57-14 at Twickenham with Ben Moon restored at loosehead prop and Mark Wilson displacing Brad Shields at blindside flanker.

Ben Youngs will become England's most-capped halfback in making his 85th appearance, one more than Danny Care on the all-time list.

England, who came into the weekend still in the running for the championship, quickly put their disappointment behind them with four tries without reply to take complete control.

There was one last twist in the tale of this classic, though, and Ford stormed under the posts from England's final attack to at least partially spare Eddie Jones' blushes, though Scotland retain the Calcutta Cup.

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

Gregor Townsend believed Scotland had no chance of turning around their Six Nations clash with England before a stunning second half at Twickenham.

"We can talk about the aftermath of this later on you have to give credit to Wales - they're deserved Grand Slam winners". To respond the way we did in the second half, I was more than proud. 'It's about taking a measured approach at the start of their career, letting them develop their game and exposing them to the right games.
