Italy vs Scotland rugby: Kick-off time, TV channel, live stream free and team news for Six Nations clash in Rome

SCOTLAND visit Italy as both sides look for their first win of this year's Six Nations.

The Azzurri have taken the Wooden Spoon in each of the last four Championships and haven't won a game in the competition since 2015.

That 22-19 victory came against the Scots and after an improved display over France, the Italians will be in buoyant mood.

Scotland meanwhile have lost to Ireland and England in this year's edition, going down 6-13 to the Red Rose a fortnight ago at Murrayfield.

What time does Italy vs Scotland kick off?

THIS clash in Rome is all set for Saturday, February 22.

Kick-off is set for 2.15pm UK time.

That's 3.15pm in Rome and 9.15am if you're watching on the East Coast of the USA.

It's two years since Scotland last faced the Azzurri in the Italian capital, winning a thriller 29-27.

What TV channel is Italy vs Scotland on and can I live stream it?

EVERY match of this year's Six Nations is being shown live on free-to-air TV in the UK.

You can see how the Scot's get on in Rome on ITV1 from 1.25pm.

If you want to stream the action, head to the ITV Hub or download the official app.

What is the team news?

IN a boost, Scotland have welcomed back injured pair Sam Skinner and Matt Fagerson to their squad.

But Finn Russell will continue to play no part after breaching team protocol prior to the Six Nations opener against Ireland earlier this month.

While Alex Craig has been sent back to Gloucester and will play no part.

There are no new injury issues for Italy, who are targeting victory in this game in a bid to end a 22-game winless Six Nations run.

Lock Dean Budd revealed: "Scotland are always with us, unfortunately in the battle of the battlers down the bottom and it’s one we’re going to be targeting.

"I’m not going to go out and say Scotland are a bad team because they’re b***** class. They’re really a good side but playing at home is certainly an advantage for us."
