Training for Twickers: Sergio Parisse

Italy coach Jacques Brunel has included suspended skipper Sergio Parisse in his 31-man squad ahead of next week's Six Nations clash with England at Twickenham.

Parisse is currently serving a 30-day ban for insulting a referee but has nevertheless been included in the hope that his appeal against the ban is successful.

The squad that lost to Wales is otherwise unchanged.

Italy squad:

Forwards (18): Roberto Barbieri (Treviso), Martin Castrogiovanni (Leicester), Lorenzo Cittadini (Treviso), Alberto De Marchi (Treviso), Paul Derbyshire (Treviso), Simone Favaro (Treviso), Joshua Furno (Narbonne), Quintin Geldenhuys (Zebre), Leonardo Ghiraldini (Treviso), Davide Giazzon (Zebre), Andrea Lo Cicero (Racing-Metro), Francesco Minto (Treviso), Sergio Parisse (Stade Francais), Antonio Pavanello (Treviso), Michele Rizzo (Treviso), Ratu Manoa Vosawai (Treviso), Alessandro Zanni (Treviso), Mauro Bergamasco (Zebre).

Backs (13):Tommaso Benvenuti (Treviso), Tobias Botes (Treviso), Kris Burton (Treviso), Paolo Buso (Zebre), Gonzalo Canale (La Rochelle), Gonzalo Garcia (Zebre), Edoardo Gori (Treviso), Tommaso Iannone (Treviso), Andrea Masi (London Wasps), Luke McLean (Treviso), Luciano Orquera (Zebre), Luca Morini (Treviso), Giovanbattista Venditti (Zebre).
