The players are playing for each other, playing for the shirt
and playing for the people who come and watch them."
- Vern Cotter
The Scots will be aiming for three-in-a-row against Italy in the RBS 6 Nations, after last season’s thrilling win in Rome (courtesy of Duncan Weir’s nerveless drop-goal) and the 34-10 victory at BT Murrayfield in 2013, when Stuart Hogg’s glorious length-of-the-pitch score was the pick of the day’s many tries.
The Italians endured a tough summer, losing all three tests but in the autumn internationals, beat Samoa (24-13), lost narrowly to Argentina (18-20) and made South Africa work hard for their win (6-22).
