Scotland v Italy: Six Nations 2023 – live | Six Nations 2023
Capuozzo out as Italy chase first Murrayfield win in eight years
I’m sorry to break the news if you didn’t already know, but everyone’s favorite player will not be participating today. Hot-walking wizard Ange Capuozzo suffered a shoulder injury ahead of the game against Wales, but that doesn’t mean Italy can’t hurt Scotland today. 10-year-old Paolo Garbisi is a superstar and a powerful backline.
Italy: Alan; Bruno, Brex, Menoncello, Gesi; P Garbisi, Fusco; Fischetti, Nicotera, Riccioni, Iachizzi, Ruzza, Negri, Lamaro (c), L Cannone
Replacements: Manfredi, Zani, Ceccarelli, N Cannone, Pettinelli, Zuliani, A Garbisi, Morisi.
No Finns but a solid Scottish team named
Blair Kinghorn starts at 10. This will attract attention. He’s no Bobby Dazzler but he’s got pace and deft hands.
Scotland: Black-smith; Steyn, Jones, Tuipulotu, Van der Merwe; Kinghorn, White; Schoeman, Turner, Z Fagerson, Skinner, Gray, Ritchie (c), Watson, Dempsey
Subs: Ashman, Sutherland, Nel, Cummings, M Fagerson, Price, Healy, Redpath
Hello everyone! We created it. The final round of what has been a cracking Six Nations. And, if I may be a bit personal, these are my two favorite teams in the competition. I know France and Ireland are the darlings of European rugby at the moment, but I love what the Scots and the Italians are. He must be dashing and daring (despite the absence of Finn).
For Scotland, they have a chance to underline their status as the third best team on the continent. They haven’t finished in the first half since 2018 and a win today will secure third place.
Italy are ready to prove that last year’s victory over Wales was no wonder. They have been disappointing this season despite putting up strong performances. Winning today would be a scalp and as it’s their last hoorah they’re going to give it their all.
My name is Daniel, but feel free to call me Dan, we are all friends in these parts. Write to me if you want. Looking forward to being with you in the next few hours.
Kick off is at 12:30 p.m.. Teams and more coming soon.
