Magnus Bradbury has been recalled by Scotland to face England in the Calcutta Cup at Murrayfield on Saturday.

The Edinburgh back-row missed Scotland's 19-12 defeat by Ireland in their Six Nations opener in Dublin last week with a thigh strain.

He has now returned at number eight in place of club-mate Nick Haining in the only change to the starting XV announced by Scotland coach Gregor Townsend on Thursday.

Scotland (15-1):

Stuart Hogg (capt); Sean Maitland, Huw Jones, Sam Johnson, Blair Kinghorn; Adam Hastings, Ali Price; Magnus Bradbury, Hamish Watson, Jamie Ritchie; Jonny Gray, Scott Cummings; Zander Fagerson, Fraser Brown, Rory Sutherland

Replacements: Stuart McInally, Allan Dell, Simon Berghan, Ben Toolis, Nick Haining, George Horne, Rory Hutchinson, Chris Harris
