Six Nations: Italy make 5 changes for Wales

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 11 – Italy coach Franco Smith has made
five changes to the Italy starting line-up to face Wales at the
Olimpico on Saturday compared to the team that went down 48-10
at home to Ireland two weeks ago.
    The outside trio will be made up of Trulla at fullback with
Ioane and Bellini on the wings.
    The centre combo of Brex and Canna will make their third
straight start.
    Garbisi and Varney will be behind the scrum.
    The back row has been confirmed with Lamaro at number eight
joined by Negri and Meyer.
    Sisi will be flanked in the second row by Cannone who makes his
starting return.
    In the front row Zilocchi and Fischetti will flank captain Bigi.
    “We are ready to continue our path facing a team that is vying
to win the tournament,” said Smith who is hoping to avert a 41st
straight defeat in the Six Nations.
    “We are aiming for the goal of improving our performances to
become more competitive with each passing match.
    “Every week we work hard to win, all together, players and
staff”. (ANSA).
