Edinburgh - Nick De Luca has been recalled by Scotland for their final Six Nations match against Italy after recovering from the hamstring problem that forced him to miss the defeat by Ireland.

Max Evans switches to the wing to accommodate De Luca at outside center and replace the injured Lee Jones.

Coach Andy Robinson has named an otherwise unchanged team for a match that will decide which country finishes last with the so-called wooden spoon.

Robinson says "Nick was unfortunate to miss the game in Ireland ... and the challenge for him on Saturday will be to contribute as purposefully against the Italians as he did in his last game, against France."

After four defeats, Scotland leads last-place Italy only on points difference.

Teams:
