Italy have made one change to the victorious line-up of last week as they look to back up that win with a triumph over Tonga in Padova.

Conor O’Shea has brought in Quintin Geldenhuys for Andries van Schalkwyk, the latter having scored a try against South Africa in Florence.

Otherwise it is an unchanged starting XV for the Azzurri, who will name their replacements bench for the Stadio Euganeo clash on Thursday.
