Kyle Sinckler and Elliot Daly have been added to England's training squad as head coach Eddie Jones prepares for the Six Nations game against France on Saturday, 10 March.

Back Daly is included despite a calf injury ruling him out of contention for Wasps last weekend.

Harlequins prop Sinckler has returned to full fitness after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Jones has named an initial 27-man squad for the penultimate Six Nations match.

Meanwhile, an England Rugby spokesman said there would be no further comment on the investigation into what happened between England and Scotland players in the tunnel at Murrayfield before kick-off last Saturday.

As the teams returned to the dressing rooms after the pre-match warm-up, England back Owen Farrell and Scotland forward Ryan Wilson appeared to clash at the entrance to the tunnel.

Television footage showed other players then pulling the pair apart.

Scotland won 25-13 to secure their first victory over England since 2008.
