DAVID Sisi impressed on his Six Nations debut as Italy lost 33-20 to Scotland at Murrayfield.

The former London Irish back-row star from Totton played the full 80 minutes as Italy succumbed to a Blair Kinghorn hat-trick - Scotland’s first-ever Six Nations treble.

Sisi, a former Hounsdown schoolboy, began playing for Tottonians RFC.

He moved to Bath after impressing for England U20s but struggled to hold down a regular place.

The 25 year-old flanker is midway through his second season with Italian outfit Zebre, where he has thrived.

Born in Germany at the British Military Hospital of Rinteln, Sisi qualifies to play for Italy through his grandparents.

He also has close ties to Scotland where his father, Carlo, was born.

Next up for Italy is a clash against Wales in Rome this Saturday.
