Rugby U


Good afternoon friends, it's the final Saturday of the 2017 Six Nations Championship, Scotland V Italy to kick us off, Rob Sutton talking you through the action.

Italy can't avoid the wooden spoon but will be looking for their first win of the Six Nations. It's Vern Cotter's final game in charge and he will be hoping his team can claim a third win in the Championship for this year.

Scotland team: Hogg, Seymour, Jones, Dunbar, Visser, Russell, Price, Reid, Ford, Ferguson, Glichrist, Gray, Barclay, Watson, Wilson Replacements: Brown, Dell, Berghan, Swinson, Du Preez, Pyrgos, Weir, Scott.

Italy team: Padovani, Espositio, Benvenuti, McLean, Venditti, Canna, Gori, Lovotti, Gega, Cittadini, Fuser, Biagi, Mbanada, Steyn, Parisse Replacements: Ghiraldini, Panico, Chistolini, van Schalkwyk, Ruzza, Minto, Violi, Sperandio

Wet day at Murrayfield, not a day for running rugby but here come the teams, off go the fireworks.

Here come the anthems... Italy up first.

Few more passionate anthems than the Italian one, now for Flower of Scotland.

Love how they cut the music and allow the crowd just to sing the second verse, we are almost set to go.

Pascal Gauzere from France is our referee... here we go then for Super Saturday, Scotland in their change strip of white, Italy in blue, off we go at Murrayfield.

1- Quiet at Murrayfield but frankly I've never been to a lunchtime match with a good atmosphere.

The rain's probably not helping the atmosphere either.
