Brendan Williams has been named at full-back in place of Kristopher Burton, who drops to bench duty, while Luca Morisi comes in at centre, which leads to Luke McLean dropping out of the 22.

Up front, Michele Rizzo and Lorenzo Cittadini are preferred over Alberto De Marchi and Lorenzo Cittadini as props, Valerio Bernaḅ and Antonio Pavanello come in at lock while Paul Derbyshire and Dean Budd earn a run in the back-row.
