Bath flanker Sam Underhill has been ruled out of contention due to concussion, while Northampton centre Fraser Dingwall has a calf issue.

England A head coach John Mitchell said: “This squad has grown over the past few weeks, is full of energy and competition and the players have given their all.

“Now the next step is for us to work even harder at becoming more cohesive in our final stages of our preparation.

“We are looking forward to a tough game against Scotland A. We’ve prepared well and will arrive ready for it.”
