    Scotland have suffered a late blow before Saturday's Six Nations match against Italy with number eight Dave Denton forced out of the starting XV.

    The Bath back-rower, 26, sustained a "mild" groin strain in Friday's captain's run and will be replaced by Glasgow's Ryan Wilson.

    Wilson, recalled to the match-day 23 in Rome, is promoted from the bench.

    Josh Strauss, who played 75 minutes for Glasgow against Dragons on Thursday, is summoned to join the replacements.

  2. Post update

    Italy v Scotland (14:25 GMT)

    We have loads of build-up to England's first match at Twickenham under Eddie Jones' leadership but first we're concentrating on Scotland.

    They've lost their last nine Six Nations matches - their worst run in the competition since they lost 15 in a row between 1951 and 1955.

    Let's start with some breaking teams news from the Scotland dressing room at Rome's Stadio Olimpico...

  3. Tears and tantrums

    Over in Hollywood they're getting ready to hand out Oscars. There will no doubt be tears and tantrums - just as there will be on and off the pitches in Rome and south west London today.

    Can debuting England second row Maro Itoje secure best newcomer? Will Scotland scoop most improved performance? Can Ireland pull out off best celebration? Will Italy's Martin Castrogiovanni win best make-up and hairstyling?

    This is the running order for games eight and nine of the 2016 Six Nations:

    14:25 GMT: Italy v Scotland

    16:50 GMT: England v Ireland

  4. Can England rid home demons?

    England players react after Australia score a try at the 2015 World Cup

    It's 147 days since they trudged off the famous Twickenham turf in a state of shock and disbelief.

    Today England return home with a new captain - not forgetting a new head coach - and a new injection of optimism.

    Beat Ireland at the scene of last year's World Cup debacle and they will go some way to exorcising the ghosts of those shattering pool defeats by Wales and Australia.
