LIZ MUSGROVE will make her first start for Scotland in two years on Saturday.

The Scotland team has been named for their Women’s Six Nations clash with Italy, which is being screened live on BBC iPlayer.

Musgrove, who was named on the bench for the country's opening match with England earlier this month, comes into the team alongside fellow former North Berwick High School pupil Megan Gaffney.

The 24-year-old did not represent Scotland for a spell after moving to Hong Kong, where she played rugby and coached, and also through a problematic hip injury.

Bryan Easson, head coach of the Scotland national side, was looking forward to the contest, which kicks off at 5pm.

He said: “We will be looking to build on the positive aspects of our performance against England, particularly our set-piece and resilience on the pitch.

“I was really impressed with our ability to put England under pressure in that second-half, but we will now be looking for the players to bring that form for the full 80 minutes against Italy and turn the pressure into points.”

Musgrove and Gaffney will be hoping to inspire Scotland to their first win over Italy in the competition since 2017 when Scotland won 14-12 at Broadwood Stadium.

Victory for Scotland would see them face either France or Ireland in their next match of the revamped competition.
