Red Roses' Amy Cokayne returns to Test rugby for the first time in a year when she starts against Scotland this Saturday in Edinburgh (14:15, live on BBC).

The Leicester Tigers hooker, who made two Premiership Women’s Rugby appearances last month, scored twice against Saturday’s hosts in last year’s tournament.

She is one of two changes in the forwards from the round three win over Wales with lock Abbie Ward promoted to the starting XV, while the backline is unchanged.

Zoe Aldcroft switches to blindside flanker and will captain the side.

Head Coach John Mitchell said: “The fallow week presented a moment to reflect on the opening rounds and grow the elements of our game.

“Our learnings all build towards evolving our performance. We are looking forward to building on this and taking another step forward together against Scotland this weekend.”
