England's Courtney Lawes tipped to make Scotland clash despite hamstring strain

England have eased fears over Courtney Lawes' fitness after he was unable to take part in Friday's open training at Twickenham.

Lawes sat out the morning's defensive session in front of a crowd of 15,000 with a hamstring injury, but it will not prevent him from playing against Scotland at Murrayfield on February 6.

"Courtney's got a small hamstring strain but he'll be all right for next week," defence coach Paul Gustard said.
