Italy makes four changes for six-nations encounter

6:14 am on 11 February 2011

Italy Rugby coach Nick Mallett has made four changes to his team to face England at Twickenham in tomorrow's Six Nations.

Scrum-half Edoardo Gori and New Zealand-born flanker Josh Sole miss the game with injury and are replaced by Pablo Canavosio and Valerio Bernabo respectively.

The other two switches see Australia-born first five-eighth Kris Burton drop to the bench with Luciano Orquera replacing him and South African-born lock Carlo Del Fava coming in for Santiago Dellape.

Last week England began their Six Nations campaign with an impressive 26-19 success in Wales while Italy suffered a last-gasp 13-11 defeat at home to Ireland.
