Wasps full-back Matteo Minozzi returns for Italy in the only change made for Saturday's Guinness Six Nations finale against England in Rome.

Minozzi missed last weekend’s 50-17 mauling by Ireland in order to appear in his club’s narrow Gallagher Premiership final defeat by Exeter on the same day.

Now available for international duty, the electric full-back has been promoted straight into the starting XV at the expense of Jayden Hayward.

Hooker Luca Bigi captains Franco Smith’s side at the Stadio Olimpico where England are looking to win the title.
