Alberto Sgarbi of Italy breaks 2013 6N

Ruled out: Alberto Sgarbi

Italy centre Alberto Sgarbi has been ruled out of this weekend's Six Nations clash against Scotland due to an ankle injury.

The Treviso back started at inside centre in last Sunday's shock 23-18 defeat of France but was forced off in the second-half and will not travel to Murrayfield for Saturday's match.

Italy have a few headaches in midfield because former Clermont centre Gonzalo Canale, who came off the bench against France, is in doubt for the trip to Scotland as he struggles to recover from a knock to his right thigh.
