Sale Sharks hooker Tommy Taylor has joined up with the England squad ahead of Saturday's Six Nations game against France.

Uncapped Taylor, 24, comes in for Jamie George who had already been ruled out of the game in Paris with a ruptured tendon in his bicep.

Luke Cowan-Dickie was England's replacement hooker on Saturday as they defeated Wales at Twickenham.

England head into the game at the weekend looking to secure their first Grand Slam since 2003, after sealing the Six Nations championship on Sunday, following Scotland's victory over France.

32 players assembled at Pennyhill Park on Sunday to train for the game at Stade de France.
