Tuilagi retained in England squad ahead of Calcutta Cup

Manu Tuilagi has been retained in a 35-man England training squad selected to prepare for Saturday's Guinness Six Nations clash with Scotland.

Tuilagi limped off with a groin injury just 16 minutes into the 24-17 defeat by France in Paris that opened the Championship in deflating fashion and is undergoing medical checks.

The destructive Leicester centre sustained a career-threatening groin injury in the past and will not be risked at Murrayfield if there is a suggestion he is not fully fit.

England will provide an update on him at Tuesday lunchtime with Eddie Jones naming his starting XV 48 hours later.
