England’s Helena Rowland will start at 10 at the Women’s Open of Six Nations for Women against Scotland, while Zoe Harrison is knocked out of the 23rd round after violating the coronavirus protocol.
Players have to file a health report every day, and Harrison lost her place because she failed to do so three times.
Wasp fly-half Meg Jones will fill the gap on the bench.
Center Emily Scarratt is captain of the flank as regular skipper Sarah Hunter continues her return after injury.
Hunter played for the Loughborough Lightning club last weekend, but he has not recovered enough from stretching the tendon for international duties.
Bryony Cleall – the twin sister of starting number eight Poppy – will earn her second cap on solid prop as England’s 2020 Grand Slam champions begin a campaign at Doncaster’s Castle Park.
Cleall is joined by relaxed head Vicki Cornborough and whore Lark Davies, and in the second row Cath O’Donnell will appear in England for the first time since 2019 after a long-term knee ligament injury.
