Croft: return to England fold

Sky Bet

Fit-again duo Tom Croft and Courtney Lawes have returned to England's training squad ahead of Sunday's RBS Six Nations fixture with Scotland - and have been joined by Harlequins pair Joe Marler and Chris Robshaw.

Leicester flanker Croft and Northampton second row Lawes are in contention for Calcutta Cup selection at Twickenham, after both players missed the first three rounds of the Six Nations through injury.

Prop Marler provides additional front-row cover for Grand Slam chasers England, while flanker Robshaw comes into the camp in place of Joe Worsley, who is receiving treatment at Wasps for knee and hand problems.

Wasps centre Riki Flutey is also back at the club to have treatment on a dead leg.
