After coming within a couple of feet of a famous victory against France, Italy will hope for another encouraging performance as Scotland come to Rome.

Gonzalo Quesada’s side were the width of a post away from winning in Lille a fortnight ago as they continue to show promise under their new coach.

But the Scottish side will be full of confidence after another Calcutta Cup win and hoping to keep the Six Nations alive.

While Ireland will secure another crown with a full five points at Twickenham regardless of Scotland’s result, Gregor Townsend’s team will hope to put the pressure on with a trip to Dublin to come on the final weekend.
