Flanker Alessandro Zanni says Italy are desperate to beat Scotland on Saturday and claim their first RBS 6 Nations triumph in almost two years.

Coming off an opening defeat at Ireland and a narrow home setback against England, the Azzurri will now face the Scots in a battle of two winless teams.

"This game will mark our last appearance in front of our fans in this edition and we absolutely want to take a good result," said Zanni.

"It will be a great maturity test for us because we already proved with a great performance against England that we are at the level of the top teams.

"All that was missing in that game was the win, and we are tired of losing."
