  COACH: Matt Williams COACH: John Kirwan
Italy recorded only its third win in this competition since entering in 2000. Scotland was its first victim in its first ever match in the then newly formed 6-Nations.
De Rossi, who played brilliantly, led the side again in the absence of regular captain Alesandro Troncon who is still injured.
Scotland coach Matt Williams was forced to leave out experienced players Tom Smith (prop) and Cameron Mather (flanker) because of injury.
Four changes were made in the Italy backline from the match v France. Roland De Marigny, who made his debut v France, moved to the pivotal fly half. Kiwi Wakarua moved to the bench. Manuel Dallan returned from injury.
