Saracens full-back Alex Goode declares himself fit for England's Six Nations opener against Scotland on Saturday.

Saracens full-back Alex Goode has revealed that he will be fit for England's Six Nations opener against Scotland on Saturday.

The 24-year-old, who had been expected to miss the match with a shoulder injury, returned for his club in their 19-11 LV= Cup victory over Cardiff Blues at the weekend.

"I feel really good. There was a bit of apprehension - you always go into a situation like that a bit unsure at times," he told Sky Sports News.

"But I'd done all the training, I'd tested the shoulder to the max and the physios had done a great job. I felt 100% going into the game and the shoulder came through really well. I was very happy.

"I was a bit winded after getting smashed by their winger, but I managed to carry on all right and the shoulder showed no effects after the game. It feels brilliant and I'm very confident going forward."

Goode has made nine appearances for his country.
