BAGSHOT, England (Reuters) - Winger Joe Cokanasiga has been dropped from the England squad to face Scotland in the final game of the Six Nations on Saturday a week after his man-of-the-match performance in their thrashing of Italy.
Coach Eddie Jones named his team on Thursday, recalling Jack Nowell to the right wing and moving Manu Tuilagi, who scored two tries in last weekâ€™s 57-14 win, to inside centre to accommodate the return of Henry Slade at 13.
There was no reference to an injury for Cokanasiga but Jones will explain his decision in a news conference later on Thursday.
