Vern Cotter has today named the side that will face Italy in their last game of this years Six Nations.

Their opponents are at the bottom of the table for another year, but they will not look to back down. O’Shea certainly did his job against England, but in a rather untraditional fashion. Could he be planning something of the same caliber for Saturday?

Who thinks this Scotland side can clinch another win on Saturday? In what is lining up to be a quality closing week to the Six Nations.
