Milan - Italy prop Martin Castrogiovanni is set to miss Saturday's Six Nations match against Scotland at Murrayfield after being bitten on the nose by a friend's dog, the Ansa news agency reported on Monday.

The Italian rugby federation said Castrogiovanni had suffered a "slight domestic incident" and been left out of the provisional squad, though it did not give any further details.
