Four Wasps in white this weekend

Joe Launchbury and James Haskell have both been named in the England squad to face Scotland this weekend, while Elliot Daly and Joe Simpson are included in the Saxons.

On Friday night, England Saxons take on Scotland A at Kingston Park (20:00) with two Wasps named in the squad; Elliot Daly once again named to start at fullback and Joe Simpson included among the replacements.

Having recently announced his move to London Wasps next season, Matt Mullan also earns a start, replacing Nick Wood at loosehead prop.

The only other change from the side that beat the Irish Wolfhounds sees Jonny May start in the place of Christian Wade.

On Saturday, England face Scotland in their opening fixture of the 2013 Six Nations at Twickenham Stadium (16:00). Joe Launchbury has been named in the starting line-up for England, with fellow Wasp James Haskell among the replacements.

That side sees only two changes from the team that started against New Zealand in December, with Billy Twelvetrees and Joe Marler replacing Manusamoa Tuilagi and Alex Corbisiero respectively.

On the bench, Dylan Hartley, Toby Flood and David Strettle come into the side in the place of David Paice, Freddie Burns and Jonathan Joseph.
