Davies (pictured) packs down in the second row for the 6.15pm kick-off at Northampton’s Franklin’s Gardens, with the match being shown live on Sky Sports 1.

Club-mate Jamie Blamire is named among England’s replacements, both players having featured in their 46-0 victory over Italy in Darlington on February 24.

England Under-20s coach Ian Vass said: “It is credit to the environment and the pool of players that selection is so competitive.

“We work hard on improving each week and there is a positive mind-set in camp, so hopefully we can produce another good performance.

“Scotland have shown so far in the competition they are dangerous on the attack and they will come at us hard, but we just need to focus on how we perform.”
