Jones keeps changes to minimum for 1st England game

BY foxsports • February 4, 2016

LONDON (AP) Eddie Jones has kept faith with the England players who underperformed in the Rugby World Cup in his first selection as head coach for the Six Nations match against Scotland on Saturday.

The only player in the starting lineup who wasn't at the World Cup is Dylan Hartley, the controversial new captain. Hartley was suspended for the tournament.

There are three uncapped players on the bench, though, in center Ollie Devoto, prop Paul Hill and flanker Jack Clifford.

Jones took charge in November after Stuart Lancaster was fired following England's failure to get out of the group stage in the World Cup.
