Good afternoon Six Nations fans
Welcome to SunSport’s coverage of Italy vs Scotland from Rome.
Spring has finally sprung and the Scots are leaping into town for this Six Nations clash.
There is never anywhere to hide in international rugby and Scotland certainly found that two weeks ago when they were kicking themselves during defeat to France.
But they can press reset with a win against the Azzurri, but have some injury problems to contend with.
Scotland cannot win the Six Nations title outright, but do have a long shot of finishing second if other results go their way.
For the Italians, it seems that pride is once again on the line and they simply need to get a result.
They have not won a Six Nations match since they beat Scotland in Murrayfield in 2015.
Their best two finishes in this tournament were in 2007 and 2013 when they grabbed two wins.
Gregor Townsend’s side have a few injury issues, notably on the wing and in the front row, meaning the Scotland coach has had to shuffle his pack.
