  • Maro Itoje has returned to Saracens after injuring his knee

England will be without Maro Itoje for their final Six Nations match against Scotland.

Itoje had hoped to return before the end of the Championship, but suffered a recurrence of his knee injury last week and will not now feature.

"Maro's a class player, but his health comes first and that's the most important thing", said defence coach John Mitchell, who was unable to provide a date for his return. Itoje was taking part in a passing drill at England's Surrey HQ last Tuesday when he tried to step around head coach Eddie Jones and collapsed to the ground in pain, before being helped away.

Joe Launchbury and George Kruis, who both started against Italy, will be expected to.

Charlie Ewels was called up to replace Itoje and the Bath second row retains his spot in a squad that includes uncapped quartet Ben Earl, Elliott Stooke, Marcus Smith and Ollie Thorley.

Mitchell confirmed that Jack Nowell is available for selection after recovering from the shoulder stinger injury sustained against Wales on February 23, confronting Jones with a selection dilemma on the right wing. "He'll continue to improve and we'll focus on his basics".

Should Wales lose to Ireland on the final day - England could snatch the championship with victory over Scotland.
