Masi out of Wales and France matches

Italy fullback Andrea Masi was ruled out of the Six Nations matches against Wales on Mar. 14 and France the following weekend due to injury, the Italian rugby union said Friday.


Masi missed the match with Scotland after receiving a three-week ban for a high tackle on Ireland’s Rob Kearney in Italy’s second game of the championship.


The Biarritz player has been suffering with nerve problems in his back and will be replaced by Brive’s Luciano Orquera, who has won 12 caps for Italy.
