Italy call up Buso & Nitoglia

Italy have called up the Calvisano duo of Paolo Buso and Ludovico Nitoglia to their Six Nations squad to replace injured fullback David Bortolussi and wing Kaine Robertson.

Robertson has been ruled out for between two and three weeks with a thigh injury the Italian Rugby Federation said on its Web site.

Kiwi born Robertson will miss the visit to Wales on February the 23rd but could be back in action on March the 9th when Italy travel to France.

Bortolussi lools to be sidelined for the rest of the Six Nations after injuring his shoulder this week while training with his French club Montpellier.

Uncapped Buso, 21, who plays fullback or flyhalf and wing Nitoglia, who has 17 caps, were called up from Italy’s A squad.
