Harlequins outside centre Matt Hopper has been ruled of England Saxons' clash with Scotland A on Friday because of a rib injury.

Hopper, who has been in fine form for the Premiership side, sustained the knock during Saturday's 14-8 loss to the Ireland Wolfhounds at Kingsholm.

He has been forced to withdraw from the Saxons squad ahead of the Scotstoun showdown, but club-mates Dave Ward, Luke Wallace and Charlie Matthews all hope to be involved.
