Figure image
Tigers prop Martin Castrogiovanni has been named in the Italian starting XV for this Saturday's match with Scotland at Murrayfield (kick-off 3pm).

Castro was among the replacements for Italy's opening day defeat to France but put in an impressive display from the start during the 20-7 loss against England at Twickenham.

The 25-year-old, 19st 2lb prop is in line to win his 43rd international cap as Italy go in search of their first Six Nations victory for three years.
