MEGAN Gaffney has retained her place in the Scotland Women to face Italy on Friday. 

Gaffney, from North Berwick, will make her 25th appearance for the national side as she lines up on the right wing in an unchanged back line following the 64-0 defeat to England on Saturday.

Jade Konkel, the country's only professional female player, returns at number eight as Shade Munro's side go searching for their second win of the championship - having beaten Wales in round three.

Munro said: “We are aiming to end this year’s Six Nations campaign on a positive note with a strong performance against Italy.

"We need a consistent and solid performance at Broadwood as Italy are a very good side and have been improving with every game in the tournament."
