Parisse back in Italy squad
Italy have included skipper Sergio Parisse in their squad for their final two Six Nations fixtures against England and France.
A concussion ruled the No.8 out of last weekend's defeat to Ireland but he is ready to return for the trip to Twickenham and then the visit of Les Bleus to Rome.
Fellow back-rower Jake Polledri is also included after injury along with hooker Oliviero Fabiani.
Prop Marco Riccioni, scrum-half Callum Braley and centre Marco Zanon could all win their first caps in the matches and coach Conor O'Shea has explained the make-up of his party as they aim to end a run of 20 straight Six Nations defeats.
O'Shea said: "We have called up 35 players to have a wide range to choose from for the final two games of the Guinness Six Nations.
"For the game against England we will fly over with 26 players while in Rome for the match against France we will have 31 players available."
