Italy's Jacques Brunel has called up Fabio Ongaro ahead of their match with Scotland on Saturday.
The former Saracens hooker is added as Leonardo Ghiraldini is an injury doubt after leaving the field in Saturday's 24-3 defeat to Wales with a shoulder injury. Other than Ongaro, Brunel has retained the same squad ahead of the wooden spoon decider.
Forwards: Fabio Staibano, Lorenzo Cittadini, Andrea Lo Cicero, Michele Rizzo, Martin Castrogiovanni, Tommaso D'Apice, Leonardo Ghiraldini, Fabio Ongaro, Quintin Geldenhuys, Cornelius Van Zyl, Marco Bortolami, Joshua Furno, Robert Barbieri, Manoa Vosawai, Francesco Minto, Simone Favaro, Sergio Parisse (captain), Alessandro Zanni
