England call-up for Gloucester centre Twelvetrees

First published in Sport

GLOUCESTER centre Billy Twelvetrees is in line to make his England debut in Saturday's Six Nations match against Scotland at Twickenham.

The 24-year-old has been named in the 23-man matchday squad and is favourite to start with Manu Tuilagi injured and Jonathan Joseph returning to his club.

Gloucester team-mate Ben Morgan has also been named in the updated England squad.

England head coach Stuart Lancaster said: “We've had to make some tough calls with a lot of competition for places.

“The players' attitude and application in training has been first rate and we know those going back to their clubs and playing in the LV Cup will be pushing hard for contention for the Ireland match.”

Lancaster will confirm his starting XV for England's opening match on later today.
