Scotland secured their first Six Nations victory since the opening weekend as they cruised to a 33-22 success over winless Italy at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. 

Gregor Townsend’s charges scored tries through inside-centre Sam Johnson, outside-centre Chris Harris (two), wing Darcy Graham, and full-back Stuart Hogg, while fly-half Finn Russell added four conversions.

Italy registered points through Callum Braley and Ange Capuozzo (two) tries – the latter on his Test debut – as well as a Paolo Garbisi penalty and two conversions, but having remained in the fight in the first half, they fell away in the second.
