Johnson 'excited' ahead of Scotland test
England manager Martin Johnson has made just two changes to the starting XV for Saturday's Calcutta Cup match against Scotland at Murrayfield.
Wasps' Joe Worsley replaces Lewis Moody at open-side flanker, while Leicester lock Louis Deacon comes in for the injured Simon Shaw.
Full-back Delon Armitage has shaken off a rib injury and will start.
There is one newcomer on the bench, with Leicester scrum-half Ben Youngs taking the place of Paul Hodgson.
Also added to the bench are Northampton lock Courtney Lawes, who won his first cap as a replacement against Australia last November, and Brive hooker Steve Thompson.
England are looking to bounce back from their home defeat by Ireland last time out after wins over Wales and Italy.
Johnson said: "It was probably the toughest selection we've had, not because we lost the last game but because the squad we have now, if we lose someone, we have someone in that position who can come in and we wouldn't miss a beat.
Scotland, coached by former England boss Andy Robinson, return to Murrayfield on the back of a defeat to Italy in Rome and chasing their first victory of the tournament.
But England have lost on each of their last two visits to Murrayfield and Saturday's game marks the 20-year anniversary of Scotland's 13-7 Grand Slam-clinching victory.
"We are playing a Scotland team who have lost three games and they could certainly have won two of them," added Johnson. "They are an incredibly resilient, tough team."
England: Delon Armitage; Mark Cueto, Mathew Tait, Riki Flutey, Ugo Monye; Jonny Wilkinson, Danny Care; Tim Payne, Dylan Hartley, Dan Cole; Louis Deacon, Steve Borthwick (captain); James Haskell, Joe Worsley, Nick Easter. Replacements: Steve Thompson, David Wilson, Courtney Lawes, Lewis Moody, Ben Youngs, Toby Flood, Ben Foden.
