May: I'm ready to face up to Scots.

ENGLAND wing Jonny May is expecting more blows to torment his battered nose in tomorrow's Calcutta Cup clash with Scotland.

May will take his place on the left wing of an unchanged starting XV after being given the all-clear to play at Murrayfield despite incurring a undisplaced fracture to his nose against France.

"I've broken my nose in the past and I've had a few knocks on it recently. It was waiting to go almost," May said.

"I will probably get a smack on the nose early in the Scotland game, but it's sore most of the time anyway. It gets hit in most games!" May has ruled out the need to wear a protective face mask and despite the brief duration of his second cap, he enjoyed every second of it.

"I wasn't fazed by the occasion and was relishing the environment," the 23-year-old said.

"It wasn't particularly painful at the time, it's just that there was so much blood and the doctor wasn't too sure what it was. In terms of trying to protect me he made the decision that I wouldn't go back on because he was worried that I might have fractured my cheekbone or eye socket."
