Eddie Jones keeps Joe Cokanasiga on ice for the World Cup

  • Jack Nowell returns from injury

Eddie Jones hints that Joe Cokanasiga will be part of England's World Cup squad despite dropping the rookie wing for the climax to the Guinness Six Nations against Scotland.

But Cokanasiga was not even named on the bench for the Calcutta Cup clash against Scotland with fellow wing Jack Nowell, the man he came in for last weekend, returning after a shoulder "stinger" injury in one of four changes made by Jones to his starting XV. How can Ireland win the Six Nations against Wales in Cardiff next week?

Jones is keen to use the experience of Nowell and Ben Te'o against Scotland, with England still in with a chance of snatching the title out of Wales' hands. That's when you get a good player and that's what we're doing with him.

Jack Nowell grabbed the first try after 56 seconds and further scores by Tom Curry, Joe Launchbury and Jonny May - his sixth of the championship, had them 31-7 up at the break after Stuart McInally scored a charge-down try in a rare bright moment for the visitors.

"If we impose our game on Scotland it'll be pretty tough for them", said Jones, whose team finished fifth last season after losing their last three games and then lost two in a row against South Africa.

Ben Youngs will also become England's most-capped scum-half as he wins his 85th cap.

Tuilagi agreed a new two-year contract with Leicester this week and Jones added: 'Manu's future is looked after and we're really happy for him.

"With young players, particularly in this environment, you've got to look after them", England's head coach said.

"We've got a good plan in place for him", Jones said.

"Sometimes you let them go and sometimes you pull them back a bit".

"It's about taking a measured approach at the start of their career, letting them develop their game and exposing them to the right games".

Jones said there was nothing planned in terms of watching the earlier game. 'When they're blown up to be something they're not, it's hard for them, so that's part of it. Joe's a very good kid, but the media can turn anyone's head.' So, how had Cokanasiga taken the news of his demotion?
