BATH second row Charlie Ewels has been dropped for England’s Calcutta Cup meeting with Scotland on Saturday.

Ewels (24), made his sixth international start in England’s 24-17 Six Nations defeat by France last weekend, but was replaced with his side 24-0 down.

Joe Launchbury, who missed the defeat in Paris with a knee injury, is included in a 25-man squad.

Saracens’ Ben Earl is also retained but fellow back row Ted Hill is surplus to head coach Eddie Jones’ requirements.

Bath’s Tom Dunn, Northampton’s Alex Moon and Exeter’s prop Harry Williams have been cut from the forwards list, with Northampton centre Fraser Dingwall and Wasps Jacob Umaga cut from the backline.

Anthony Watson has already been ruled out with a calf injury, and Manu Tuilagi with a groin problem.
