Three Leicester Tigers players have been named in the England squad to face Scotland in Round Three of the 2024 Guinness Six Nations.

Dan Cole and Ollie Chessum both start in the pack ahead of Saturday's Calcutta Cup clash (kick off: 4.15pm).

George Martin is also in line for a return to action, the lock named amongst the replacements having recently returned to the England squad this week following a knee injury.
