Worcester's Heather Fisher will start for England Women in their game against Scotland in the RBS 6 Nations this Saturday at Meggatland in Edinburgh, kick off 130pm.

The flanker has replaced Lichfield's Jane Leonard who sustained an injury in a Premiership match on Sunday.

Fisher, who has nine caps for England, has been involved in each of England's Six Nations games, which has seen the defending champions win three matches out of three so far.

For the first time this season Darlington Mowden Park Sharks' Katy McLean will captain England with skipper Catherine Spencer starting on the bench. Worcester's Karen Jones, Richmond's Emma Layland and Bristol's Kim Oliver also return to the England squad for the first time this season after some impressive performances for England A. Richmond's Fiona Pocock will also make her first start for England at full back after missing England's 22-5 victory over Ireland because of illness.
