Kelly Haimona starts at fly-half for Italy with Carlo Canna missing out through injury as Jacques Brunel makes four changes for Saturday's Six Nations clash against Scotland in Rome.

Edoardo Padovani will provide back up to Haimona with Canna not even making the matchday squad.

Hooker Leonardo Ghiraldini comes in for Ornel Gega, who fractured his cheekbone in the defeat to England.

Elsewhere, George Biagi is replaced by Josh Furno in the second row, though David Odiete returns at full-back having missed the England clash through injury.
