Tebaldi out of Wales clash as Italy call up Makelara

Tito Tebaldi will miss Italy’s Six Nations clash with Wales on Saturday, courtesy of the back problem that forced him to miss last weekend’s defeat to Scotland.

Scrum-half Tebaldi was named in Conor O’Shea’s line-up to face Scotland but pulled out after suffering an injury in the warm-up at Murrayfield, with his place going to Guglielmo Palazzani.

Tebaldi has now been released from Italy’s squad for the Wales game and will be re-evaluated ahead of the clash with Ireland a fortnight later.

Italy added veteran number nine Edoardo Gori to their squad on Sunday, together with Zebre hooker Oliviero Fabiani.

However, Fabiani has now been withdrawn from the group after a second evaluation of his condition, with the uncapped Engjel Makelara of Benetton Treviso taking his place.
