May fit for Scotland clash

Jonny May is available for England's RBS 6 Nations clash with Scotland on Saturday despite breaking his nose against France.

May lasted only eight minutes of the 26-24 defeat in Paris, forcing an early reshuffle of England's backline.

The Gloucester wing, who has two caps, saw a specialist on Monday afternoon and was passed fit for the Calcutta Cup showdown at Murrayfield.

"Following a scan review and a specialist assessment which confirmed an undisplaced fracture of his nose, Jonny will be available for selection," a statement released by the Rugby Football Union said.
