EDINBURGH – Scotland have announced their team for their second Six Nations game against England on Saturday.

Number 8 Magnus Bradbury is the only change Scotland’s starting line-up for this Saturday’s Guinness Six Nations Test against England at BT Murrayfield Stadium.

The 24-year-old Edinburgh back-row has recovered from the thigh strain that kept him from starting last weekend’s loss to Ireland, with clubmate and debutant that day,Nick Haining, moving to the bench.

The remaining change to the match 23 occurs on the bench, where Edinburgh tighthead Simon Berghan returns to the position in which he was selected last weekend, only to be ruled out through illness on the day of the game.
