Italy reveal extent of Tebaldi's injury
Scrumhalf 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.
However, Fabiani has now been withdrawn from the group after a second evaluation of his condition, with the uncapped Engjel Makelara of Benetton Treviso taking his place.
