Former Scotland coach Sir Ian McGeechan will attend England's training camp in Leeds next week ahead of the Calcutta Cup clash.

The British & Irish Lions legend has been invited to attend by Stuart Lancaster and will offer his analysis on England's preparations according to a report in The Daily Express.

McGeechan coached Scotland between 1999-2003 and has been involved with seven Lions tours as a player and coach. He has also worked with Aviva Premiership sides Wasps, Gloucester and Bath.

Despite his allegiances to his country however, McGeechan insists that he will not be sharing any secrets from the England camp.

"It's a privilege to be asked and to be able to watch and to be allowed an insight, but I will not take that knowledge elsewhere," said McGeechan.
