The 2018 Six Nations concludes in Padova on Sunday with a game between bottom-of-the-table Italy and a Scotland side looking to repeat last year’s fourth-place finish. Both sides will be looking to build on their impressive victories over Wales and Ireland respectively in round four and also pick up valuable points in the rankings.
